Looking cross early netherlandish painter Rogier van der Weyden's works, I found the portrait of Francesco d'Este ,who holding a ring and a warhammer(since it has langet along the shaft), and another portrait, holding an arrow

I searched google,and the meaning of the hammer was explained as a elblem of power of tournament prize, and the arrow leader of the archers' guild?
I still want to get information from arms and armour fans on this topic, not an art historian, they once explained to me Goya's The Third of May 1808 why the French soldier carrying their pack because the painter had something to tell, balabala Eek!
