A Yoroi collection in a Buenos Aires Museum
Unfortunately do not have more information about this armours
If anyone can make any contribution is welcome
Thanks for looking ... and sorry for my poor english
It's a fake samurai helmet?
Can you post more info please? (And sorry fot my poor english...)
Eduardo, not fake as samurai were in charge of fighting fires but the helmet pictured was a type of uniform and protection from fire and not armor used to protect from fighting. The museum has placed the helmet on a suit of armor which would not be how it was worn originally.
The fire fighters helmet would have a long thick cloth cape or mantle attached to the underneath of the helmet so that no burning embers could get to the clothes being worn during a fire. I have read that the cape could be soaked in water for further protection. The fire fighters helmet is much lighter then a traditional helmet. Here is a link to more pictures.
