Arm harness, Palace Museum

click on this image to enlarge....

This is an arm harness at the Palace Museum in Malta. Look beyond the decoration, and observe the deep dishing of the elbow cop at the lower left, and the clever articulation of the rerebrace at the upper right. See the roped edges throughout, the attachment point of the vambrace, the roped ridges at the weld lines of the elbow cops. Lots to see in a little picture!

And I see by the IP map below that at least one person is vistiting here from Malta. You should say hi, and leave a comment! Thanks for dropping in.
