Now that 'How to Read European Armor' has hit the shelves, here of one of my posts from @metarmsandarmor about our work on the book.

This armor, which comes from a large garniture that belonged to the Marquis de Dos Aguas, was missing the screw that bolts the helmet and throat-reinforce (volant) together for the joust. More often then not, a missing piece does not take away from the overall appearance, readability, or structural integrity of an object. But in this case, it was decided that the missing screw was structurally important, and so prominently placed that a modern style screw head would stand out next to the surviving filed and gilt screws on the breastplate.
To make the replacement screw, the threading was hand-cut out of a steel rod using a saw and files. The head was filed out of an old carriage-bolt and hard soldered to the threaded shank. The head was then patinated and pigmented to match the color and wear of the surviving screws. Finally, the screw was stamped with an ‘MMA’ mark to help identify it as a replacement.

Amazing what a little elbow grease can achieve. Generally don't do to much when it comes to restoration or deep cleaning, but thought I would give this one a good going over. Next a fancy Miyaan.

"Get on touch with disappearing traditional lifestyles." That is the mission of the Koka City Kounan "Fureai-no-Yakata,"'a small museum I explored yesterday. It was a moving experience to see action shots like this photograph, documented the work of the last representative of a craft that is now extinct, with the tools of the trade displayed behind glass, and still mannekins telling us, fifteen years after his death, what his and generations of artisans specializing in the manufacture of giant saws were capable of. I am posting images of the reconstituted forger and polisher at work, both resting the saws on large stubs, as well as an old photograph of the kinds of trees these saws were intended for. They were not meant to bring them down, but cut the trunks into giant, perfectly straight planks. I could not help think of the trade of armor makers in the European tradition, and how little we actually know about it today. #armsandarmor #kounan #saws #metalworking #nostalgia #lostcraft #maebikinoko #

We are now in Visby, where the battle of Visby took place in 1361. These are some of the finds from the battle field, rare examples of armor of the period. All this and more when you #travelwiththemet #armsandarmor #medieval

During war and the hunt, crossbowmen would carry their projectiles, called bolts, in quivers. More sophisticated bolts, intended for shooting competitions, might be stored and transported in boxes like this one, which is believed to have been made for William IV, Duke of Bavaria.
The lid is inlaid on its outside with scenes from the medieval story of Virgil the Sorcerer, intended as a humorous warning against the "wiles of women." Corresponding inlay on the inside shows a Fountain of Youth and Orpheus playing music to the animals, surrounded by an inscription based on a German drinking song. The maker, Hans Wagner, signed himself Pixenshifter, gunstock maker.
The box in now on view in ESDA's exhibition 'Relative Values: The Cost of Art in the Northern Renaissance' (Gallery 521).

When things don't go as planned: I have shared a detail from this drawing before, but there are so many vignettes of epic fails in this work that I can't help but post another. This is a water buffalo hunt that is going all sorts of wrong. I love the expressions on the animals' faces!
