Domed Shield. Tibetan, possibly 15th–18th century. Cane, iron, brass, silver, pigments, leather (2005.145) #metarmsandarmor #armsandarmor #themet #Tibet #cane #shield

Simple and elegant. I love the various curves and shapes that form this katar (punch-dagger), especially the decorative metal work between the two horizontal bars that collectively form the grip. India, 17th-18th century, steel. #themet #armsandarmor #armsandarmour #weapon #dagger #hilt #india #steel

Earlier last week, the Arms and Armor team performed maintenance on the equestrian group. This included vacuuming and removing some minor corrosion spots on the armor.

From my first catalogue in 2015 (now out of print) this South Indian dagger had real charm, I wonder what stories she would tell could tell could she talk! Read on for more information: A late 19th century South Indian stiletto dagger, with carved elephant ivory hilt in the form of a naked dancer or celestial apsara. The lady is stood on a circular pedestal, her ankles with heavy bells painted with gold, her buttocks are round and patinated, with a gold and green belt around her waist. Her left hand holding a flask in front of her left breast, and right hand down by her side holding a garland or prayer beads, both arms with bazu bands and bracelets. She wears a pair of large earings which are set with red corals and her ears with two small malachite stones. Her plaited and elaborate hair adorned with jewellery known as a rear chotli and a forehead tikka again set with coral and malachite stones, the top of the plat having a painted red flower with a green leafy stem below.
The turned bolster and the blade are of European style and form, the forte is cut with four chevrons and precisely decorated with gold damascening in a European style. The lower section of the blade is double edged and of flattened diamond section. The velvet clad wooden scabbard (velvet now worn) complete with matching chape and throat piece, the chape having a central fleur-de-lis motif. The patina on her shapely bottom suggests that the lady has been much handled.
A dagger of similar form and carved ivory handle was sold by Christies, Lot 388, sale 1812, Indian and South East Asian Art, 21st March 2007, New York, Rockafeller Plaza. It is said to have been sold previously by Spink and Son Ltd., London, 1988, and is described as 18th century, Dutch East Indies or Goa. #indianart #asianart #islamicart #indoportuguese #classicalindiandance #armsandarmor #armsandarmour #knifestagram #knifeporn #hinduart #tamilnadu #parcoursdesmondes

The black knight in shrouded armor.

Finally completed the texturing and weight painting for the Divine Shroud armor set and thrown it into Unreal, for posing. Feels like more can be done, still have the wings to complete as well so maybe another push forward will be made.
