pre heraldry 4

紋章のルーツ -その4

14 October 1966, United Kingdom
900th Anniversary of Battle of Hastings
design: David Gentleman

Flying soldier and tumbled horse…  The pattern on the warriors body expresses their chain mail armor.

空飛ぶ兵士と倒れる馬、、、。この切手の発行から900年前の戦いの様子。戦士の体の鱗のような模様は、細かい鉄の輪をつないで作った鎧の描写です。
