How it fits into contest

The serpent represents the evil which is plaguing someone's thoughts and actions. The sword symbolizes the fight that takes place in the mind and soul when battling this evil. The shield is the protection given by God, showing that through prayer (praying hands) and faith the battle will be won and victory through peace, (the dove) will be achieved.
