The carving is completed for the Form of 2004 plaque. The photo above is of the completed carving which represents the following elements:

Upper left: The outline of the State of Massachusetts divided into (what will be) rainbow colored stripes to represent the passage of marriage equality on May 17th, 2004 – the first state to do so.

Right: The Princess Elizabeth Challenge Cup  which sits on top of a shield featuring an emblem from the Henley-on-Thames coat of arms – representing the win at Henley for the boys’ crew team.
