Artwork Inspired by the Holloway brooch designed by Sylvia Pankhurst. The Brooch comprises a portcullis, symbol of the House of commons, a gate and hanging chains, superimposed with the broad arrow. The Broad Arrow, known as the Imperial Brand or King's Mark was first used to brand English Horses during the Hundred Years War. The original Brooch's were first presented to ex-suffragette prisoners at a mass demonstration at the Albert Hall on 29th April 1909.
