Lion Wax Seal Crest Necklace
Vi et Arte - By Strength and Skill
Pictured is the head of a fierce Lion with the Latin caption reading By Strength and Skill, meaning I can conquer anything or anyone by strength and skill.
The lion has always held a high place in heraldry as the emblem of deathless courage, and hence, that of a valiant warrior. It is said to be the symbol of a good soldier, who must be "valiant in courage and strong of body". In Ireland it was the symbol of a great warrior chief, indeed a foe to be feared.
Symbol for : power, strength, protection and also for dauntless courage, majesty and gentleness.
