For the final two carved armorial memorials in St. Bavo's Cathedral in Ghent, we find the following:
These are the arms of Govaart-Geeraard van Eersel, Bishop of Ghent 1770–1778. (We will see these arms again later in a stained glass window.) The are blazoned: Or three beavers rampant, the two in chief respectant, proper.
This is a carved portrait of Joachim du Puget, Baron de la Serre, d. 1717, singer of the Chapter of St. Bavo’s.
And here is his coat of arms:
His arms are blazoned: Quarterly: 1 and 4, Gules a mullet of sixteen points or; 2 and 3, Or a ram clymant sable collared argent. I do not know the tinctures of the inescutcheon: A cross paty.
