4 Armor Images
Today we have a nice collection of Armor Images! The metal covering used by Knights to protect themselves and their Horses is usually used in combat or jousting tournaments. The ornate quality of the protective armor for men and their horses is so impressive! I especially love the image of the brave and courageous French Heroine Joan of Arc. We have a great Vintage Shield Image, a Jousting picture, and a fine example of Knight and Horse in their finery. All are splendid pictures to use in your craft or DIY Projects. They would all be fun for your Collage or Card Making projects as well!
Pictured above is a wonderful engraving of a stately looking Joan of Arc, heroine of France! Her nickname is “The Maid of Orléans.” Here we see the small but mighty Maid wearing an armored top with a skirt!! She rests her hand on an armor head covering with three large plume feathers known as a horn. The other hand holds her sword. It looks like there is some type of castle or fortress in the background. This one comes from a fine 1860’s book.
Old Knight in Armor Pictures
Here we have an armored Knight… all ready to fight. He is wearing a full suit of armor as is his magnificent horse. This Knight has a full Lion standing on his helmet. They appear to be galloping off to battle with sword (called a lance) in air and ready to strike! Perhaps it is a very important encounter with the enemy!
Featured above is a jousting image for the Vintage Kid’s Printable series. It appears that both Knights are about to hit each other at the same time with their lances! I’m offering a coloring page for the boys (of course girls can use this too, as well as adults)! These are from a superb antique costume book!!
Vintage Shield Armor Image
Above is an interesting Vintage Shield Armor Image! This is a rustic looking Wooden Shield containing an Armor helmet with full neck protection called a gorget. This head covering looks a little more decorative because the visor and face shield have wide openings. There are fancy Scrolls on the front of what appears to be a family Coat of Arms! This one comes from a book in my collection, a rare Circa 1907 Pyrography Catalog! The catalog is full of patterns, tools, and accessories for the art of Pyrography, which refers to burning a design into wood. This intricate design would have been used for that purpose, and added to boxes or small furniture pieces. A nice one for your masculine projects!
