An Amazing Array of Images of the Arms of Antwerp, Belgium
So, wandering about the city of Antwerp, Belgium, I ran across the following depictions of its coat of arms, in an amazing display of heraldry.
Carved into a stone monument:
Here, held by a cast bronze statue:
In stained glass (here, on the upper right side) in the Cathedral of Our Lady:
Painted on interior walls in the Cathedral:
Carved or cast on public buildings:
Underfoot in the street:
And even on a lunchtime glass of beer:
It was a treat to see such a wide variety of uses of the city's heraldry in so many different media.
