Wax Seal Necklace With Heraldic Tiger

The tiger depicted in heraldry bares little resemblance to the real animal.




A wax seal necklace with a heraldic tiger (also known as heraldic Tyger).

The tiger signifies great fierceness and valour when enraged to combat.
In heraldry, it also symbolises one whose resentment will be dangerous if aroused.

The tiger depicted in heraldry was the attempt of artist to portray an animal they had never seen and knew only by repute.
That is why the creature they drew bore little resemblance to the real animal.
