Leopard

in Christian art, is employed to represent that beast spoken of in the Apocalypse with seven heads and ten horns; six of the horns bear a nimbus, but the seventh, being “wounded to death” lost its power, and consequently has no nimbus.

Leopard,
in heraldry, represents those brave and generous warriors who have performed some bold enterprise with force, courage, promptitude, and activity.
