The Sign of Life

The Sign of Life

This mousebrass, along with the Sign of Hope, is normally bestowed upon those whose struggles in life will be difficult and demanding, with little or no reward.

This brass is given to them as a reminder that their endeavours are never in vain and to inspire them to overcome the obstacles placed in their path. Jenkin Nettle bore this sign and it was this which his father discovered in the owl pellet of Mahoot after his son was murdered.
