The vigorous carving on the capitals of the twelfth century pillars which flank the cathedrals nave have inspired the coasterís silver gallery. Its whorls of Norman tracery have been interwoven with the leopardís heads of Cantilupe. Three leopardsí heads, reversed and transfixed with fleur de lys, formed the coat of arms of St Thomas Cantilupe, and became the Arms of the Diocese, adorn the centre of the coaster.
