Tomb Effigy of Jacquelin de Ferrière

North French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 305

The counts of Ferrière come from near Montargis (Diocese of Sens) in northern France. Sir Jacquelin is represented in full mail armor. His hands, laid across his chest, are slipped through slits in the wrists of the sleeve. The horseshoes on the shield are a canting device, the heraldic term for a visual pun on an individual's name, in this case (fers-de-chevals).
