Gladiator helmets tended to be as dramatic and theatrical as they were defensive and none show this as well as this Brass Gladiator Mosaic Helmet. Modeled after the typical Thraex helmet, this piece of armor is as protective as it is ornate. Like the typical Thraex helmet, this helm features a tall, protruding crest from the top of the helms crown that ends in a vaguely avian, bird-like shape, symbolic of the griffin, the animal-companion of the goddess of vengeance, Nemesis. A subtle, embossed ridge adorns the forehead of the helm, while an embossed palm tree sits above the brim, again symbolic of the palm leaf that was typically awarded to the victor of gladiatorial matches. A wide brim wraps around the helmet to protect and deflect blows away, while the face of the helmet features a full mask for protection, protecting even the eyes by covering the eye-holes in mosaic-mesh coverings. This helmet is made from quality brass metals and it features a truly impressive looking polished finish. Gladiator helmets were designed to be specialized defenses, as well as dramatic pieces that caught the crowds attention, and in those regards, this Brass Gladiator Mosaic Helmet does not disappoint. Whether worn as a part of a gladiators attire or displayed as a piece of your collection and decor, this helmet is a fantastic acquisition for any Roman enthusiast.
