One Piece Corinthian Helmet by Matt Lukes
#1
This was not a commission for me, rather Matt was experimenting with various processes on the weekends that he would need to learn to make one of these in case anyone wanted one. It turned out so well I decided to make it mine. Note that the nasal guard sides are turned to give it more strength and the appearance of thickness.

Not a dwelling within sight, and the farm labourer, and curious traveller, are the only persons that ever visit the scene where once so many thousands were congregated." T.Lewin 1867

I am particularly impressed by those edge treatments. Nice acquisition, Joe!

All my acquisitions, like this helmet, are for use by the public when they visit the Penn Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. Although a reproduction it can still teach the visitors, especially kids, quite a bit as they will probably never handle an authentic ancient helmet artifact.
