17th Century Spanish Hand-Carved Capstone Carving is a stunning testament to the talents of the masons who lovingly crafted it to embellish a city-owned building.  The artistry depicts a fleur-de-lys embellished cross in full relief set upon an heraldic crest with scrolled edges.  The stone has been mortised in the back to be fitted to a projecting beam so that it looks out over the surrounding ground on an exterior wall.  The old, weathered stone has already seen three centuries pass and is looking forward to the next three!
