ARMORIAL and GALLERIES:
Section: Vol.II: the Noble Families
Mr Jawid (of the City of St. Petersburg)Artist: Michael Medvedev, GHA[R]
Traditional coat-of-arms of the old Lithuanian noble family (that is to say, of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania; more precisely, the family belonged to the Belarus nation) is remarkable for its old-fashionedly straightforward cruelty, more common in Hungarian armory. The arms are named also “Jawid” as they are unique and not shared, modo polonico, with any other families.
