Ever wanted your own Coat of Arms to put in a prominent position in your home? If so then this Toscano Heraldic Royal Lions Coat of Arms wall sculpture will be just what you’re looking for. The royal blazon of arms has been cast in quality designer resin and then been individually hand painted in antique gold and sea mist green. This classic coat of arms style is similar to the original heraldic devices seen across Europe from the 12th Century onwards.

This sculptural coat of arms for placement on just about any wall in the home features a pair of lion-headed mythological beasts either side of a green lion shield and royal crown. The design most closely resembles the English heraldic tradition and for anyone with known English ancestors, this coat of arms will make a particularly suitable decorative addition or gift.

The coat of arms in history was generally believed to have been first used as an identifying device on 12th Century battlefields. In order for feudal lords and knights to refrain from accidently killing one of their own side, the armorial devices provided an easily recognizable symbol. However, the heraldic device then soon began to become an identifying display for families, first of the aristocracy and then indeed, of all classes.

Today, across the world, institutions, families, businesses and nations have family crests and heraldic designs. The ones of the United States and the British Royal Family are probably the most well-known and widely recognised.

If, like me, you have a deep interest and appreciation for old European history and art, then this sculptural coat of arms will be a great addition for a wall in your hallway, dining room, bedroom, home library or living room. It’s sure to bring about a regal feel to the interior décor scheme and ambiance.
