Greek Etruscan Roman Bronze Helmet

2,500.00

This helmet is modeled after the Etruscan helmet in the museum of natural history in Rome. Peter Connelly portrayed Lars porsena as wearing this helmet in his book " hannibal and the enemy's of Rome " (an Awesome book ! ) this helmet is hand raised from one sheet of sheet bronze. This helmet took approx. 50-60 hours of hammering , annealing , heat treating and hammering ,annealing etc....this process repeats approx. 200 times before helmet is shaped . No other company or artist is doing helmets without welding them. This helmet has no welds ! The ram heads are bronze foils that are reinforced and attached to the helmet as was the original. While in Italy I studied and photographed this helmet among many others.I made this helmet large . I'm 6 foot 4 inches and as u can see from the pictures it fits me perfect. I lined the helmet with dear skin and it has a padded pillow in the dome for comfort. The original helmet has evidence that it had a crest but the one I made is purely speculated.
