M12 "Hawk" Badge

Product code (SKU):  m12
Weight: 17 g

A hawk held on a hawking glove. England, 15 c. Hawks were so highly valued that piligrimages were undertaken for their behalf. If a sick or wounded bird could not be taken to a holy place its wax model was taken or a badge like this.
Badges were used by medieval pilgrims as souvenirs from the holy places which they had attended, as tangible proves of attendance such a holy place. Each place of cult had it's own badges so seeing a pilgrim wearing certain badges one could name the places which this pilgrim had visited. Also, so called secular badges existed which could belong to an authority or a noble who gave these badges to his/her courtiers, srevants, supporters and so on. Badges commemorating a major event existed, too.
