In this highly religious time, life on earth was considered a preparation for the afterlife. Here Thomas ap Ieuan of Arddynwent, Flintshire, pleads for salvation with the inscription Resvrgam (May I rise again). The robin symbolizes Christ’s Resurrection – its red chest was believed to have been pierced by the crown of thorns. The coat of arms documents Thomas’s ancestry, which includes the Davies family of Gwysaney.
