This is casted from an original stone plaque that was a frontage to a Belgian castle. It is likely that this plaque features the Coat of Arms of the family Crawhez, according to the Jean-Baptiste Rietstap, who created one of the worlds largest armorial references in the late 1800’s. “MANUS MITTIT AD FORTIA” (Direct translation is “To Send the Strong Hand”). A similar Coat of Arms can be seen on the 16th century Chapelle Saint-Ghislain de Dampremy.
