A recreation of a T’ang dynasty Era (or a generic Tang-type) lamellar cuirass and helmet. Creators unknown: felicitations to them for their superb work.

Note the impressive visor possibly representing the face of a Far East demon or mythical monster. A neck protector is adjusted on the helmet, made of the same lamellar armour as the cuirass’s.

This type of armour was used not only in T’ang and meta-T’ang Era China but also in some of the adjacent kingdoms and tribal federations due to the influence of T’ang civilization, military technology inclusive.
