Spanish term or phrase: Lacerías
From a description of Halberds, the baldes of which are:

"...decoradas con las columnas de Hércules, el lema Plus Ultra y lacerías grabadas en ambas caras".

Engraved lacerations? Surely not ;-)???

Heavy Deadline, long translation, brain gone dead. Anyone think of a better alternative?

Explanation:
The RAE defines the word as "conjunto de lazos", i.e., a bow knot. "Knot" is a term in heraldry, as is "cord". "Bow" or bow knot" would also serve in this context. Hope this helps.

I'm gonna go for a combination of these :-) But the points go here.. because believe it or not I did not know of the "on-line" existence of the RAED (Pity it's notREAD, ¿eh? - or even DREAD? ;-)

That's going to be a "first stop" place from now on. My arms get too tired for Maria Moliner.. and beside my version has no translations.. which some "prozers" seem to have in theirs.
