A recent (April 21, 2010) post on Leeds Tapestry* (http://leedstapestry.blogspot.com/2010/04/legal-sector-leeds-coat-of-arms.html), discusses one panel (of sixteen) of a larger community project to which several artists are contributing. The panel that is the subject of the April 21 post is the achievement of arms of the city of Leeds, Yorkshire, England.
Isn't it great to see people involved in creating heraldry? Be sure to drop by Leeds Tapestry for a greater discussion of the arms and the origins of the various elements which make it up.
*Leeds Tapestry documents a community embroidery conceived by Kate Russell to celebrate the life and times of this West Yorkshire city at the millennium. The sixteen completed panels are on display at the Central Library in Leeds.
Happy New Year!
