Just letting ya know I'm also in on the new thread!
I was trying to track down a more concrete idea of what I see in the back of your shirt and found this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tara_(Buddhism
) I keep seeing references to Tara as the "goddess of liberation" so I think that's pretty relevant. But a quick image search shows a lot of pix that come close to what I'm seeing.
Or it could be a kitty with a head dress on.
Either way, it came out pretty cool!
