Though it was created centuries ago, the imagery of power and rank that adorns this circular garment appliqué is easily readable today. Two rampant lions, symbols of kingly authority, heraldically flank a stylized tree, epitomizing prosperity, wealth and life itself. The person who commissioned this delicate work so long ago must have enjoyed the privileges of worldly power. The centuries have placed such changeable fortune in perspective, but this small manifestation of power continues to impress us today. - (P.3614)
