Behind the scenes

The Latin phrase in the description, "Sic semper tyrannis," translates to "thus always to tyrants." It is traditionally attributed to Marcus Brutus during the assassination of Julius Caesar and was historically used as a rallying cry against abuse of power. It was most infamously invoked by John Wilkes Booth during the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
