I thought it was same as mine but I think mine is a bit darker and the shape is slightly different.

Also, I think yours has a brown beard. This is described as aconite violet. The camera has not really captured the true colour, which has no white or black to it. First time I have seen this, I do like it!

Wow, you're right. Mine has a brown/yellow beard. I haven't noticed it until I looked at my photo just now. You've got eagle eyes!

'Silent Majesty' -- I love the name!

Maybe it should be silent majority!!!!! After looking up the painting!

They sound nearly the same!
The name reminded me of "the" painting right away when I first read your description!
