Fancy indeed!

The photo above is a military helmet that looks honestly more like a movie prop with its extravagance, or something a king would wear for a ceremony. The helmet is dated around 1500-1100 B.C. and was found in Southwestern Iran. Made from bronze, the delicate and elaborate divine gold figures that adorn the helmet provide the implication that it would have been worn by a warrior of high rank, and perhaps on special occasions rather than in actual battle.
