An Important Symbol
One of the oldest symbols of authority, the earliest ceremonial Maces were actually practical weapons intended to protect the King’s person, borne by a royal bodyguard. Later, cities and parliaments adopted their use. Heads of medieval universities also followed suit, and today the Mace serves its vital role as the object vested with the power of the institution. In Academia, the Mace is one of the treasured “Symbols of Office.”
An Expected Presence
Faculty, students, and the community have always looked to academic ceremonies as the highlight of the academic year. In like manner, institutions of higher learning have long looked to the expertise of Medallic Art Company to create hand-made custom Maces to honor their universities and represent them during commencement ceremonies, inaugurations, and convocations.
The Importance of Craftsmanship
Design and execution of the Mace meshes seamlessly with the needs and vision of the institution. Exotic woods, semi-precious and precious metals, special plating and enamels, precious and semi-precious stones—all are used to create and present the perfect Mace to carry forward the cherished traditions of the institution.
