SACRIFICE Pellicano with his pity. This is how the gesture with which the pelican mother feeds her young is called in heraldry: the act of knocking out the fish that she brings into the membranous pouch by crushing it against her chest, then handing it to the chicks, is poetically interpreted as if she stabbed to make it gush out the blood, and feed them with that. The pelican then becomes a symbol of piety, love and charity for one's neighbor, of Christ who sheds blood for the redemption of men. In heraldry it is represented similar to a swan, with a slender body and a long beak, without throat sac. Detail from the memorial monument for Savina Corneliani (see whole in # 40173). High relief of Antognazza, Church of San Gallo, Valdidentro (SO), 19th century
