How to use "Herald" in context?

When considered as a work of art, a herald is not just a painting of a knight or horse, but a work that communicates a specific message to those who see it. The medieval heralds were trained in the art of courtly dialogue, and their role was to announce the presence of royalty or important dignitaries. Heralds would also carry news of battle or other important events.

Today, most heralds are no longer employed in an official capacity, but many people still enjoy seeing their work featured in art galleries and on television. There are many different types of heralds, including secular, or iconographic, ones.
