Samurai Helmet


Samurai Helmet, originally uploaded by manlyartjpc.

I drew this Friday afternoon at the Dallas Museum of Art. They have this really beautiful complete suit of 17th century samurai armor. It also had the sword, bow and quiver of arrows.

Info: Late Momoyama period- early Edo period. Early 17th Century.
Presented to Mori Kobayakawa Takakage by the emperor.

DFW kicks the crap out of Austin when it comes to museums. it's why i miss it.

Sweet sketch. I wonder why the crest is a flower/leaf
