An important and large chair that comes from an important Andalusian collection. An important and large chair that comes from an important Andalusian collection. However, the heraldic reading of the central coat of arms leads us to demarcate its origin in the Basque territory. Aesthetics are described in a general golden field with a superior crown in a reference to the Navarrese kingdom. There is a gules border (in red) with eight gold blades; symbol of protection, favour and reward. A tree is drawn on the field, associated with kindness and perseverance, as well as a reference to the antiquity of the noble family (which has roots). This plant species has been identified as the holly, represented as "medieval", a symbol of the energy of the blood in its combative action, as well as allusive to health, eternal life and prosperity. Superimposed on the tree, you can see a white greyhound, dog or wolf. All these attributes have been related to noble families dating back to medieval times and even earlier, such as the Leiza´s, Barilla´s and Lizárraga´s.
