The weird Oracle ACE logo

In my job as series editor for Rampant Techpress, I’m supposed to provide an Oracle database logo to the graphics department for web avatars, but they can only be 17 x 17 pixels, way too small for me to see it clearly!

I have bad vison and the official logo is so tiny that I can barely see it, even with my strongest reading glasses, and it’s not completely clear to me exactly what the Oracle ACE director logo looks like.

Now why would an ace of spades be wearing a crown? Is he the king of the spades, or what? So, what should a spade king look like?

With a little more enhancement we can complete the anthropomorphism, adding some eyes, a mouth, and a nice necktie.
