Activity in the Shieldery

I had some awesome assistance tonight…Ms Molly has taken a keen interest in the making of shields…she traced the shape of the next HS1 🙂

Thanks Molly!

Lionheart Shield

This one is being finished in the colors of Richard I, the emblazon of which would read: “Or, a Lion rampant Gules” which is of course, in it’s most basic form, without border, or any additional lion rampant: thought to be possibly the first incarnation of his more well known shield of three lions, which followed later.
