Star Wars R2-D2 and C-3PO Statue, Movies & Star Wars Statues, Star Wars R2-D2 and C-3PO 3D Metal Statue

Star Wars R2-D2 and C-3PO Statue, Movies & Star Wars Statues, Star Wars R2-D2 and C-3PO 3D Metal Statue

Star Wars R2-D2 and C-3PO 3D Metal Statue

This Star Wars R2-D2 and C-3PO Statue is incredibly detailed. From a simple sheet of steel to a spectacular and detailed 3D model. Simply detach the pieces and connect them to each other via holes and tabs. No glue or soldering iron needed. Modeling tweezers can come in handy for joining, squeezing and turning the tabs. You will find detailed illustrated instructions. Kotobukiya dedicates a fantastic ARTFX statue to the 2 droids protagonists of the Star Wars saga: R2-D2 and C-3PO. The droids are depicted as seen in “The Force Awakens” and the details are great. The statue also feature magnets that allow you to stand independently on the included base. R2-D2 is a fictional character from the Star Wars sci-fi universe. He is the only character along with C-3PO to appear in all major chapters of the Skywalker Saga. R2-D2 is a droid specialized in interfacing with all sorts of computers, activating any machinery such as elevators, and skilled in repairs. Hailing from the planet Naboo, he is gifted with a good dose of humor. He is good at taking certain initiatives using sometimes unorthodox methods to help his friends. He is the inseparable companion of the protocol droid C-3PO, who calls him his counterpart. Owen Lars speculates that his particular “character” is due to the absence of regular memory erasures, which can cause instability in a droid. In fact, the memory of R2-D2 is never erased by the escape from Naboo onwards (is 36 years before the death of Darth Vader).

R2-D2 stands 38 inches / 96 cm tall. He moves on 3legs” (including a removable one), has a cylindrical body surmounted by a hemispherical head equipped, among other things, with a monocle for seeing and a projector of holographic images. He has several mechanical devices inside the body, including an arc welder, a circular saw and a key for interfacing with the most varied access devices and computers in use in the galaxy. This makes the droid look like a kind of “toolbox“. Like all astro-droids it is often used as a navigator aboard starfighters and other spaceships, therefore it has the ability to establish routes, perform the calculations necessary for the hyperspace jump and maneuver the ship’s commands in concert with the human pilot, who communicates with him through voice commands. He is able to interface with any computer, which makes him very valuable in infiltration and espionage missions, being able to take control of all systems in enemy bases (e.g. elevators and automatic doors). He also has a fair amount of skill in mechanical repairs. He has limited combat capabilities, but, thanks to his artificial intelligence far superior to that of a battle droid, he is able to defeat much more dangerous and better armed opponents than himself.

C-3PO is also a character from the sci-fi universe of Star Wars. He is the only character along with R2-D2 to appear in all chapters of the Skywalker Saga. He is a protocol droid with an anthropomorphic appearance and hails from the planet Tatooine, where he was assembled by the young Anakin Skywalker from discarded pieces. He knows more than 6 million forms of communication, and this skill will make him extremely useful to his various masters. Initially, when Anakin leaves Tatooine along with Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn, C-3PO is without cover, but later, he is given a gray cover which is later replaced by a gold one. He is the inseparable companion of the little astrodroid R2-D2, which he defines as his counterpart. There is a very particular relationship between the 2, because R2-D2 is, unlike C-3PO, brave and bold and “drags” him into dangerous and difficult situations, in which, despite declaring himself against, the protocol droid always follows him. R2-D2 often teases the other droid, making jokes with his peculiar sense of humor. Star Wars R2-D2 and C-3PO 3D Metal Statue sizes: 4.25 inches / 11 cm x 2.36 inches / 6 cm x 4.84 inches / 12.5 cm.

Eye of Agamotto Talisman Statue, Movies & Marvel Universe Statues, Doctor Strange’s Eye of Agamotto Talisman Statue

Eye of Agamotto Talisman Statue, Movies & Marvel Universe Statues, Doctor Strange's Eye of Agamotto Talisman Statue

Doctor Strange’s Eye of Agamotto Talisman Statue

This illuminating Eye of Agamotto Talisman Statue is inspired by the mystical object that appears with Doctor Strange in Marvel comics and movies. This Eye of Agamotto Talisman features a glowing green Time Stone, a cord to wear around the neck like Doctor Strange does, and a quality stand finished with a patina of antiquity. Highly detailed, is designed to replicate the ancient, exotic look of the mystical token of power passed down from the first Sorcerer Supreme. With over 80 years of comic book and movie history, Marvel has become a cornerstone of fan collections around the world. With the Marvel Legends Series, fan favorite Marvel Comic Universe and Marvel Cinematic Universe characters and statues offer premium detailing for Marvel fans and collectors. The Eye of Agamotto is a fictional, mystical item appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics and other media, particularly in their Marvel Cinematic Universe films, with its first appearance in Doctor Strange. The Eye of Agamotto is a powerful relic created by Agamotto, the first Sorcerer Supreme, as a containment device for the Time Stone, enabling him and his successors to use the stone’s power without suffering the adverse effects of touching an Infinity Stone.

The Eye’s mystical properties, as well as the spells and gestured necessary to use it, were studied by the mystic Cagliostro, who recorded them in his personal Grimoire. It was then kept in Kamar-Taj. The Eye was protected by the Masters of the Mystic Arts for generations. In 2017, the Eye was found by Doctor Strange, who used the Time Stone’s power to fight Kaecilius and Dormammu and restore the Hong Kong Sanctum. The following year, the Eye of Agamotto was destroyed by Thanos during the battle on Titan after Strange had removed the Time Stone. In 2023, the Avengers initiated a Time Heist in order to resurrect the lives Thanos had claimed. Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk and Ant-Man were sent back in time to May 4, 2012 during the Battle of New York to retrieve the Space and Mind and Time Stone, where Hulk successfully convinced the Ancient One to relinquish the stone housed within the Eye. Following the Battle of Earth, where Iron Man used all 6 stones to kill Thanos and his army at the cost of his own life, Captain America time-traveled to 2012 to return the Time Stone to the Ancient One. By 2024, Strange had reconstructed the Eye of Agamotto to wear, despite the fact that it no longer contained an Infinity Stone.

The Eye of Agamotto is a weapon of wisdom that can radiate a powerful mystical light that allows Doctor Strange to see through all disguises and illusions, see past events, and track both ethereal and corporeal beings by their psychic or magical emissions. The light given off by the Eye also weakens a variety of evil mystical beings, such as demons, devils, undead beings, dark extradimensional entities, and even sufficiently corrupt human practitioners of the Dark Arts. Strange can use it to probe the minds of others, project a powerful mystical shield, and create portals to other dimensions. It has also been used to place beings into suspended animation, and it serves as the clasp for his Cloak of Levitation, and during the early years of the Defenders Strange used the light of the Eye to levitate objects as heavy as the Hulk and Professor Xavier plus his wheelchair together, or the Thing, with minimal effort while simultaneously magically controlling the cloak to fly himself, carrying a total of at least seven Megagrams (15.000 pounds). The Eye of Agamotto can be used to transport a group of dozens of beings of all kinds and power levels into another point within a Universe, as Strange did to combat the threat of Thanos. Doctor Strange’s Eye of Agamotto Talisman Statue measures: 3.2 inches / 8 cm x 9 inches / 23 cm x 9 inches / 23 cm.

God Mars Statue, Roman Empire, Military & Gods Statues, Mars Roman God of War Statue

God Mars Statue, Roman Empire, Military & Gods Statues, Mars Roman God of War Statue

Mars Roman God of War Statue

This God Mars Statue is beautifully designed, sculpted and handcrafted to the finest detail in cold cast metal (bronze/pewter) finish. The special production process of this piece, originated from Great Britain, uses actual bronze powder mixed in the cold cast resin in order to ensures a richer and more authentic presentation. Mars is the God of War and the God of Agriculture and Fertility in early Roman history. He is portrayed as a warrior in full battle armor, wearing a crested helmet and bearing a shield. He is known as the God Ares in Greek literature. The animals associated with Mars are Wolves and Woodpeckers. The month March (Martius) is named after him (wars were often started or renewed in spring). In ancient Roman religion and myth, Mars was the God of War and also an Agricultural Guardian, a combination characteristic of early Rome. He was the son of Jupiter and Juno, and he was the most prominent of the military Gods in the religion of the Roman army. Most of his festivals were held in March, the month named for him (Latin Martius), and in October, which began the season for military campaigning and ended the season for farming.

Under the influence of Greek culture, Mars was identified with the Greek God Ares, whose myths were reinterpreted in Roman literature and art under the name of Mars. But the character and dignity of Mars differed in fundamental ways from that of his Greek counterpart, who is often treated with contempt and revulsion in Greek literature. Mars’s altar in the Campus Martius, the area of Rome that took its name from him, was supposed to have been dedicated by Numa, the peace-loving semi-legendary second king of Rome. Although the center of Mars’s worship was originally located outside the sacred boundary of Rome (pomerium), Augustus made the God a renewed focus of Roman religion by establishing the Temple of Mars Ultor in his new forum. Although Ares was viewed primarily as a destructive and destabilizing force, Mars represented military power as a way to secure peace, and was a father of the Roman people. In the mythic genealogy and founding myths of Rome, Mars was the father of Romulus and Remus by his rape of Rhea Silvia.

His love affair with Venus symbolically reconciled the 2 different traditions of Rome’s founding, Venus was the divine mother of the hero Aeneas, celebrated as the Trojan refugee who “foundedRome several generations before Romulus laid out the city walls. The word Mārs (genitive Mārtis), which in Old Latin and poetic usage also appears as Māvors (Māvortis), is cognate with Oscan Māmers (Māmertos). The oldest recorded Latin form, Mamart-, is likely of foreign origin. It has been explained as deriving from Maris, the name of an Etruscan Child-God, though this is not universally agreed upon. Scholars have varying views on whether the 2 Gods are related, and if so how. Latin adjectives from the name of Mars are Martius and Martialis, from which derive English “Martial” (as in “martial arts” or “martial law“) and personal names such as “Marcus“, “Mark” and “Martin“. Mars may ultimately be a thematic reflex of the Proto-Indo-European God Perkwunos, having originally a thunderer character.

Goddess Aphrodite Statue, Greeks, Gods & Mythological Statues, Goddess Aphrodite Rising from the Sea Statue

Goddess Aphrodite Rising from the Sea Statue

As one of the Twelve Olympians, Aphrodite was the Greek Goddess of Love. The Aphrodite Rising from the Sea Statue celebrates that popular goddess. Made from cold cast bronze, this hand-painted statue depicts her standing on a seashell. To begin with, she wears a long gown with light blue highlighting. She also has armbands and a headband. Next, the wide seashell rests on cresting waves. On her right, there is a dolphin looking up at Aphrodite. Finally, there is a plaque at the bottom of the statue. The plaque reads APHRODITE. Add this intricately detailed statue to any classically inspired decor or Greek mythology collection. Aphrodite is an ancient Greek Goddess associated with Love, Lust, Beauty, Pleasure, Passion and Procreation. She was syncretized with the Roman Goddess Venus. Aphrodite’s major symbols include Myrtles, Roses, Doves, Sparrows, and Swans. The cult of Aphrodite was largely derived from that of the Phoenician Goddess Astarte, a cognate of the East Semitic Goddess Ishtar, whose cult was based on the Sumerian cult of Inanna.

Aphrodite’s main cult centers were Cythera, Cyprus, Corinth, and Athens. Her main festival was the Aphrodisia, which was celebrated annually in midsummer. In Laconia, Aphrodite was worshipped as a warrior Goddess. She was also the patron Goddess of Prostitutes, an association which led early scholars to propose the concept of “sacred prostitution” in Greco-Roman culture, an idea which is now generally seen as erroneous. In Hesiod‘s Theogony, Aphrodite is born off the coast of Cythera from the foam (aphrós) produced by Uranus‘s genitals, which his son Cronus had severed and thrown into the sea. In Homer‘s Iliad, however, she is the daughter of Zeus and Dione. Plato, in his Symposium 180e, asserts that these 2 origins actually belong to separate entities: Aphrodite Ourania (a transcendent, “Heavenly” Aphrodite) and Aphrodite Pandemos (Aphrodite common to “all the people“). Aphrodite had many other epithets, each emphasizing a different aspect of the same goddess, or used by a different local cult.

Thus she was also known as Cytherea (Lady of Cythera) and Cypris (Lady of Cyprus), because both locations claimed to be the place of her birth. In Greek mythology, Aphrodite was married to Hephaestus, the God of fire, blacksmiths and metalworking. Aphrodite was frequently unfaithful to him and had many lovers, in the Odyssey infact, she is caught in the act of adultery with Ares, the God of war. In the First Homeric Hymn to Aphrodite, she seduces the mortal shepherd Anchises. Aphrodite was also the surrogate mother and lover of the mortal shepherd Adonis, who was killed by a wild boar. Along with Athena and Hera, Aphrodite was one of the 3 Goddesses whose feud resulted in the beginning of the Trojan War and she plays a major role throughout the Iliad. Aphrodite has been featured in Western art as a symbol of female beauty and has appeared in numerous works of Western literature. She is a major deity in modern Neopagan religions, including the Church of Aphrodite, Wicca, and Hellenismos. Goddess Aphrodite Rising from The Sea Statue measures: 11 inches / 28 cm x 5 inches / 13 cm x 5 inches / 13 cm.

Pegasus Statue, Greeks & Mythological Statues, Museum Replica of Pegasus Statue

Pegasus Statue, Greeks & Mythological Statues, Museum Replica of Pegasus Statue

Museum Replica of Pegasus Statue

This Pegasus Statue is an handmade Museum Statue Replica of Pegasus made in Greece, from 100% bronze using the traditional “lost wax” technique. This is the same technique used by the ancient Greeks to create bronze sculptures and arsenal. The prototype which it was made by is a museum exhibit. The green/gold color is given through the process of oxidization. Pegasus is a mythical, winged, divine stallion and one of the most recognized creatures in Greek Mythology. Greco-Roman poets wrote about the ascent of Pegasus to heaven after his birth, and his subsequent obeisance to Zeus, king of the gods, who instructed him to bring lightning and thunder from Olympus. A friend of the Muses, Pegasus created Hippocrene, the fountain on Mt. Helicon. The Pegasus is a horse (in greek myth usually a stallion) which is generally considered to be pure white, and with a pair of white feathered wings on its back. The symbolism of Pegasus varies with time. Symbolic of wisdom and fame from the Middle Ages until the Renaissance, Pegasus became associated with poetry around the 19th century, as the fountainhead of sources from which the poets gained their inspiration.

Pegasus is the subject of a very rich iconography, especially throughout ancient Greek pottery and paintings and sculptures of the Renaissance. Hypotheses have been proposed regarding the relationship between Pegasus and the Muses, the Goddess Athena, Poseidon, Zeus, Apollo, and the hero Perseus. Pegasus was sired by Poseidon, in his roleas horse-god, and foaled by the Gorgon Medusa. He was the brother of Chrysaor, born at a single birthing when his mother was decapitated by Perseus. He was captured by the Greek hero Bellerophon near the fountain Peirene with the help of Athena and Poseidon. Pegasus allows the hero to ride him to defeat a monster, the Chimera, before realizing many other exploits. His rider, however, falls off his back trying toreach Mount Olympus. Zeus transformed him into the constellation Pegasus and placed him up in the sky. Personification of the Water, Solar Myth, or Shaman Mount, Carl Jung and his followers have seen in Pegasus a profound symbolic esotericin relation to the spiritual energy that allows to access to the realm of the Gods on Mount Olympus. Museum Replica of Pegasus Statue sizes: 4.35 inches / 11 cm x 3.95 inches / 10 cm x 1 inches / 2.5 cm.

Sun Wukong Statue, Chinese, Dragons & Mythological Statues, Sun Wukong “Monkey King with Dragon Turtle” Statue

Sun Wukong Statue, Chinese, Dragons & Mythological Statues, Sun Wukong "Monkey King with Dragon Turtle" Statue

Sun Wukong “Monkey King with Dragon Turtle” Statue

Sun Wukong Statue created by skilled craftsmen in traditional style with fine handcrafts.This is a great piece of a valuable collection, a valuable personal alter or a very good present. The handwork is very fine with incredible detailling. Perfect style, pleasing design and wonderful workmanship make this statue a rare work of art. The Monkey King, known as Sun Wukong in Mandarin Chinese, is a legendary mythical figure best known as one of the main characters in the 16th-century Chinese novel Journey to the West and many later stories and adaptations. In Journey to the West, Sun Wukong is a monkey born from a stone who acquires supernatural powers through Taoist practices. After rebelling against heaven, he is imprisoned under a mountain by the Buddha. After 500 years, he accompanies the monk Tang Sanzang and 2 other disciples on a journey to get back Buddhist Sutras from the West (the Indian subcontinent), where Buddha and his followers dwell. Sun Wukong possesses many abilities. He has amazing strength and is able to support the weight of 2 heaven mountains on his shoulders while running “with the speed of a meteor“. He is extremely fast, able to travel 108,000 li (54,000 km, 34,000 mi) in one somersault.

Sun Wukong also acquires the 72 Earthly Transformations, which allow him to access 72 unique powers, including the ability to transform into sundry animals and objects. He is a skilled fighter, capable of defeating the best warriors of heaven. His hair has magical properties, capable of making copies of himself or transforming into various weapons, animals and other things. He also shows partial weather manipulation skills and can stop people in place with fixing magic. As one of the most enduring Chinese literary characters, the Monkey King has a varied background and colorful cultural history. His inspiration comes from an amalgam of Indian and Chinese culture. The Monkey King was possibly influenced by the Hindu deity Hanuman, the Monkey-God, from the Ramayana, via stories passed by Buddhists who traveled to China. The Monkey King’s origin story includes the wind blowing on a stone, whereas Hanuman is the son of the God of Wind. Some scholars believe the character originated from the first disciple of Xuanzang, Shi Banto. His inspiration might have also come from the White Monkey legends from the Chinese Chu Kingdom (700-223 BC), which revered gibbons. These legends gave rise to stories and art motifs during the Han dynasty, eventually contributing to the Monkey King figure.

He may have also been influenced by local folk religion from Fuzhou province, where Monkey Gods were worshipped long before the novel. This included the 3 Monkey Saints of Lin Shui Palace, who were once fiends, who were subdued by the Goddess Chen Jinggu, the Empress Lin Shui. The 3 were Dan Xia Da Sheng, the Red Face Monkey Sage, Tong Tian Da Sheng, the Black Face Monkey Sage, and Shuang Shuang San Lang, the White Face Monkey Sage. The 2 traditional mainstream religions practiced in Fuzhou are Mahayana Buddhism and Taoism. Traditionally, many people practice both religions simultaneously. However, the roots of local religion dated back centuries. These diverse religions embodied elements such as gods and doctrines from different provincial folk religions and cultures, such as totem worship and traditional legends. Though there are primarily 2 main religions in China, since it is so big, different folk stories will vary from towns, cities, and provinces with their own myths about different deities. Sun Wukong’s religious status in Buddhism is often denied by Buddhist monks both Chinese and non-Chinese alike, but is very welcomed by the general public, spreading its name around the world and establishing itself as a cultural icon.

Steampunk Darth Vader Statue, Steampunk, Movies & Star Wars Statues, Steampunk Darth Vader "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back" Industrial Empire Statue

Steampunk Darth Vader “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back” Industrial Empire Statue

This Steampunk Darth Vader Statue is a uniquely Steampunk interpretation of Darth Vader based on an original illustration by Adi Granov. Standing triumphantly, Darth Vader takes on a uniquely steampunk appearance in the work entitled “Industrial Empire”. World-renowned artist Adi Granov created this exclusive illustration in collaboration with Lucasfilm! Reimagined in this iconic style, the Dark Lord of the Sith appears in a forbidding pose, arm outstretched and encased in a battle-worn suit embellished with metal plating, rivets and various pressure gauges. Masterfully recreated in 3D form, the sculptor have captured every nuance of this illustration down to the fine details of the lightsaber hilt and environmental base. The Empire Strikes Back (Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back) is a 1980 American epic space opera film directed by Irvin Kershner, with a screenplay by Leigh Brackett and Lawrence Kasdan, based on a story by George Lucas. The sequel to Star Wars (1977), it is the second film in the Star Wars film series and the fifth chronological chapter of the “Skywalker Saga“. Set 3 years after the events of Star Wars, the film recounts the battle between the malevolent Galactic Empire, led by the Emperor, and the Rebel Alliance, led by Princess Leia.

Luke Skywalker trains to master the Force so he can confront the powerful Sith lord, Darth Vader. Following Star Wars’ success, Lucas hired Brackett to write the sequel. Following her death in 1978, he outlined the whole Star Wars Saga and wrote the next draft himself, before hiring Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) writer Kasdan to enhance his work. To avoid the stress he faced directing Star Wars, Lucas handed this responsibility to Kershner and focused on expanding his special effects company Industrial Light & Magic instead. Filmed from March to September 1979, in Finse, Norway, and Elstree Studios in England, The Empire Strikes Back faced production difficulties, including actor injuries, illnesses, fires, and problems securing additional financing as costs rose. Initially budgeted at $8 million, costs had risen to $30.5 million by the project’s conclusion. Released on May 21, 1980, the highly anticipated sequel became the highest-grossing film that year, earning approximately $401.5 million worldwide. Unlike its predecessor, Empire was met with mixed reviews from critics and fans conflicted over its darker and more mature tone compared to the light-hearted Star Wars. Critics praised the puppeteered character Yoda, a diminutive alien that serves as Luke’s teacher, for having expressive features and characterization.

The film was nominated for various awards and won 2 Academy Awards, 2 Grammy Awards, and 1 BAFTA, among others. Subsequent releases have raised the film’s worldwide gross to $538-549 million and, adjusted for inflation, it is the 13th highest-grossing film in the United States and Canada. In the years since its release, Empire has been critically reassessed and is now regarded as the best film in the Star Wars series and among the greatest films of all time. It has had a significant impact on filmmaking and popular culture and is considered an example of a sequel superior to its predecessor. The climax, where Vader reveals he is Luke’s father, is often ranked as one of the greatest plot twists in cinema. The film spawned a variety of merchandise and adaptations, including video games and a radio play. The United States Library of Congress selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry in 2010. Return of the Jedi (1983) followed Empire, concluding the original Star Wars trilogy. Prequel and sequel trilogies that round out the “Skywalker Saga” have since been released.

Knights were the most-feared and best-protected warriors on the medieval battlefield. They were also the most fashionably dressed and best-mannered members of society. Medieval Armour is an historical type of personal body armour made from bronze, iron, or steel plates, culminating in the iconic suit of armour entirely encasing the wearer. Full medieval steel armour developed in Europe during the Late Middle Ages, especially in the context of the Hundred Years’ War, from the coat of plates worn over mail suits during the 14th century. In Europe, armour reached its peak in the late 15th and early 16th centuries. The full suit of armour, also referred to as a panoply, is thus a feature of the very end of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance period. Its popular association with the “medieval knight” is due to the specialised jousting armour which developed in the 16th century. Full suits of Gothic Armour were worn on the battlefields of the Burgundian and Italian Wars.

The most heavily armoured troops of the period were heavy cavalry, such as the gendarmes and early cuirassiers, but the infantry troops of the Swiss Mercenaries and the Landsknechts also took to wearing lighter suits of “three quarters” munition armour, leaving the lower legs unprotected. The use of armour declined in the 17th century, but it remained common both among the nobility and for the cuirassiers throughout the European wars of religion. After 1650, armour was mostly reduced to the simple breastplate (cuirass) worn by cuirassiers. This was due to the development of the flintlock musket, which could penetrate armour at a considerable distance. For infantry, the breastplate gained renewed importance with the development of shrapnel in the late Napoleonic wars. The use of steel plates sewn into flak jackets dates to World War II, replaced by more modern materials such as fibre-reinforced plastic since the 1950s. Partial medieval armour, made out of bronze, which protected the chest and the lower limbs, was used by the ancient Greeks, as early as the late Bronze Age. The Dendra Panoply protected the entire torso on both sides and included shoulder and neck protections. Less restrictive and heavy armor would become more widespread in the form of the muscle cuirass during classic antiquity before being superseded by other types of armor.

Parthian and Sassanian heavy cavalry known as Clibanarii used cuirasses made out of scales or mail and small, overlapping plates in the manner of the manica for the protection of arms and legs. Armor in the form of the Lorica Segmentata was used by the Roman Empire between the 1st century BC and 4th century AD. Single plates of metal armour were again used from the late 13th century on, to protect joints and shins, and these were worn over a mail hauberk. Gradually the number of plate components of medieval armour increased, protecting further areas of the body, and in barding those of a cavalryman’s horse. Armourers developed skills in articulating the lames or individual plates for parts of the body that needed to be flexible, and in fitting armour to the individual wearer like a tailor. The cost of a full suit of high quality fitted armour, as opposed to the cheaper munition armour (equivalent of ready-to-wear) was enormous, and inevitably restricted to the wealthy who were seriously committed to either soldiering or jousting. The rest of an army wore inconsistent mixtures of pieces, with mail still playing an important part.

Anubis Egyptian God of Underworld Mummification Statue

This Egyptian God Anubis Statue is made of designer composite resin, hand painted and polished. It depicts Anubis performing the mummification. Mummification is one of the defining customs in ancient Egyptian society for people today. The practice of preserving the human body is believed to be a quintessential feature of Egyptian life. Yet even mummification has a history of development and was accessible to different ranks of society in different ways during different periods. There were at least 3 different processes of mummification according to Herodotus. They range from “the most perfect” to the method employed by the “poorer classes“. The most expensive process was to preserve the body by dehydration and protect against pests, such as insects. Almost all of the actions Herodotus described serve 1 of these 2 functions. First, the brain was removed from the cranium through the nose, the gray matter was discarded. Modern mummy excavations have shown that instead of an iron hook inserted through the nose as Herodotus claims, a rod was used to liquefy the brain via the cranium, which then drained out the nose by gravity. The embalmers then rinsed the skull with certain drugs that mostly cleared any residue of brain tissue and also had the effect of killing bacteria. Next, the embalmers made an incision along the flank with a sharp blade fashioned from an Ethiopian stone and removed the contents of the abdomen.

Herodotus does not discuss the separate preservation of these organs and their placement either in special jars or back in the cavity, a process that was part of the most expensive embalming, according to archaeological evidence. The abdominal cavity was then rinsed with palm wine and an infusion of crushed, fragrant herbs and spices. The cavity was then filled with spices including myrrh, cassia, and, Herodotus notes, “every other sort of spice except frankincense“, also to preserve the person. The body was further dehydrated by placing it in natron, a naturally occurring salt, for 70 days. Herodotus insists that the body did not stay in the natron longer than 70 days. Any shorter time and the body is not completely dehydrated, any longer, and the body is too stiff to move into position for wrapping. The embalmers then wash the body again and wrapped it with linen bandages. The bandages were covered with a gum that modern research has shown is both waterproofing agent and an antimicrobial agent. At this point, the body was given back to the family. These “perfectmummies were then placed in wooden cases that were human-shaped. Richer people placed these wooden cases in stone Sarcophagi that provided further protection. The family placed the Sarcophagus in the tomb upright against the wall, according to Herodotus.
