Hand Carved Crest from a Chateau

Heraldic imagery has been a distinguishing feature of the European nobility for many centuries over. Here we see that ancient rite manifested beautifully in a large, hand carved crest from a chateau in France. Symbols of military prowess and honor are conveyed by the crossing of a carved battle axe and sword respectively. This piece likely served as one part in a series of architectural ornaments to grace a family great hall or entryway.
