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.
