About this item

This sign figures a traditional bouquet of St. Eloi, made in honor of the patron of metal craftsmen. Its purpose is to show the different types of horseshoes that could be executed by the blacksmith. A giant central iron is surrounded by twenty two smaller horseshoes. They all meet different therapeutic indications and serve to protect the sole, horny part forming the bottom of the horse's feet.
Usually, the horseshoes are gathered by eight or multiples of eight, a lucky number for blacksmiths.
