Tibetan Lamellar Helmet: Left-Side View by royaloakarmoury Tibetan Lamellar Helmet: Left-Side View by royaloakarmoury
Tibetan helmet, of a type used from the 8th – 16th centuries. Helmet skull made of eight plates laced together with leather, with an attached skirt formed from the type of lamellar known as “willow leaf.” Surprisingly well-preserved examples of these helmets still exist in Tibetan monasteries, having been acquired and maintained by the priesthood from warriors who took vows.
