This is the printers mark of Thomas Vautrollier, a Huguenot refugee to England in the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. The Latin phrase anchora spei means anchor of hope. Reaching down from heaven is a hand firmly gripping the anchor. I write to do the work of a ‘remembrancer’ because in the storms of our lives when our ship is swamped, with masts broken and sails torn, you and I both need to know how strong God’s grip is on us. Hold fast to our hope, the anchor of our soul. Queen Elizabeth, Details Tattoo Of Anchors, Frames, Crests, Hold Hands Tattoo, Details Design, Anchora Spei, God Work Our Hands, Heavens
