Sallet (Italy, approx. 1460)

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, in New York City, is such a HUGE place, no matter how many times one visits, there always seems to be something new to discover.

While aimlessly wandering around, this Sallet was on display in the Arms and Armor wing.

According to the description:

“The helmet represents the head of the Nemean Lion, whose pelt was worn as a headdress and cloak by the mythological hero Hercules.”
