A Journey of Steel
This helmet represents the different stages of war. The slightly used one with a bit of bumps, dirt and dust. The bloody one from all the war and bloodshed it went through. To the rusted abandoned one. To the ancient mossy aged stage where it finally earned it's peace.
One helmet, a thousand tales
I wanted to experiment different textures while telling the story of the helmet throughout it's journey.
This helmet was forged from watered steel and decorated in gold with arabesques and Koranic inscriptions. The inspiration to work on this project was from the age of the Ottoman sultan Süleyman the Magnificent.
