Clan badge of the Bowman family
- Art Funded
- Diameter: 7.3 cm
- Lyon & Turnbull
This clan badge takes the conventional garter form with the motto 'SUBLIMIA CURES' [possible translation: Take a care for the Sublime] with the crest of a cupid shooting an arrow. Both the crest and the motto are associated with the Bowman family. The cupid is in the form of a Negro boy dressed in skins which may indicate that the family was connected with the slave industry.
Dr William Guthrie; by descent.
