Armour

By 213hardy      
Went to the Royal Armouries Museum at Leeds yesterday, a truly fascinating placeSmile Pictures i took haven't come out very well, really struggled with the low light and shooting into glass cases. This is probably one of the best.

This particular armour is Italian circa 1620, made for Count Annibale Capodilista who was 6'7". The entire surface of this heavy cavalry armour is covered with etched and gilt decoration including the double headed eagle device.

V2 is the hall of steel, this amazing display is made up of over 2500 pieces of weaponry and armour, everything from cannon to bayonets.

All C&Cs welcome

Thanks for looking

Wow I love the perspective in version 2! I like how the colour catches your eye but then you're drawn back to the top again, it's brilliant!
