Impressive. I particularly like the mantling which looks more like cloth hanging from the helm than the usual "writhing serpent" mantling one usually finds.

But I have to say it looks like two coats of arms impaled. Many heraldists seeing these arms separate from the blazon or the explanation provided in the register would conclude that these were the arms of a man (dexter) impaling either those of his wife or those of some official position (though given the helm and crest, not a bishop).

Too much modern heraldic design takes no account of how coats of arms are usually interpreted. To take another example, inescutcheons should actually mean something, not be placed in the middle of a shield to look pretty.

My initial impression was the same, but in fairness my viewpoint is basically US largely based on British practice. Since the link shows the arms are Czech (Bohemian, no?), we would IMO need to know if this sort of impalement is consideed OK in that tradition. I don't know enough about that tradition to fairly evaluate the design of these arms.

That aside, they are quite attractive.

HI Michael, nice to see you here too....yes quite like the mantling on these arms also and the rendition all in all is a bit different which is nice.
