I do not disagree, Michael, but my eye was drawn to the pendant "N" and then to its mirror image.
This I assume to be an artefact of the rendering, not an obscure message?

Make one image, flip it to make its mirror ... oops forgot about the N!

I missed that entirely on my cellphone screen - was focused on the arms themselves and didn't pay adequate attention to the external froo-froo!

Off topic- Why does the Spanish Crown elevate commoners to such a high noble rank? These days, under the British Crown, you're lucky to get a Life Peerage. Is the Spanish marquisate not heritable?

It is. The current Marquis, Camilo José Arcadio Cela Conde is the son of the Nobel Prize winner.

But it doesn't give the bearer or his descendants a seat in the Spanish parliament. The inherited seat in the House of Lords was why the UK stopped creating heritable peerages, wasn't it?
