Middle above the portrait of Charles Howard, Lord High Admiral and commander-in-chief of the English fleet against the Spanish Armada. Above and below between portraits ship's bows with spears and banners and flanked by putti. They blow on a trumpet or shell, drum, write etc. Left and right there are four putti near a triumph or memorial column. Two putti decorate the column with garlands. A third putti writes the events in a book, the fourth has a sword and ouroboros in his hand. The ouroboros is a snake that bites its own tail and is therefore a symbol of eternity. Furthermore, two eagles with lightning bolts, the four winds and two lions with column or trident and a coat of arms. The judge shows the Anchor of Hope, the weapon of the English Admiralty.
