Artist's Description

Late 18th century Samurai Suit of Armour photographed in Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, processed in PSP

The first types of Japanese armours identified as samurai armour were known as yoroi. These early samurai suits were made from small individual scales known as kozane. The kozane were made from either iron or leather and were bound together into small strips, the strips were coated with lacquer to protect the kozane from water. A series of strips of kozane were then laced together with silk or leather lace and formed into a complete chest armour.

It is said that the Samurai carried two swords and they had the right to lop of the head of any member of the lower class that did not treat them with respect.
