Best Samurai Helmet Ever
When I first saw this in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, I was stunned. Over the years I've seen several exhibits with Samurai outfits and helmets. Most of them are exceptional, but I always go back to this one. What an amazing culture was inspired in feudal Japan, that they could produce something so delicate and sensitive on a helmet geared for battle!
