At the folio 33r of the Getty MS. Ludwig XV 13 Flower of Battle, also know as the Flos Duellatorum by Fiore dei Liberi, a fencing treatise dating around 1410, a peculiar helm can be noticed. Throughout the manuscript, different helmets recognizable as armets and early sallets can be seen, as well as this particular one. It seems that it's some for of armet with very big "cheek plates" that cover completely the face, leaving only a narrow gap as the vision slit. I've been intrigued by this helm for almost a year, and I've been sketching many different interpretation of what the author of the manuscript intended to represent. The skull is being forged from a single sheet of 3 mm and the cheek plates are 4 mm thick at the front tapering to 2 mm where they meet the skull. Right now the project is at a stop, like many other experiments I've been working on, but I hope that I can resume in the next year.
