Heraldry in Florence, Part Four

I’m not going to say that much on this post; it’s going to be mostly pictures of the various ways in which I saw the de’ Medici arms (which I introduced in the previous post) depicted: differently shaped shields, different numbers and arrangements of the roundels, different placement of the augmented roundel, and so on. It’s a truly amazing variety, but to me one of the joys of heraldry is seeing the ways in which different artists will depict the same coat of arms.
