Helmet Art II

Wearing protective headgear goes back as far as 900BC when it was already worn by Assyrian soldiers. It probably goes even further back then that, but those are the first records we can find on helmets.

Most helmets in those days were made out of straw and other organic materials, but later on from metal. They were designed to protect against blows from swords, arrows and other arms.

Since the 1990s, we don't have to content with those heavy materials anymore, because they are made from lightweight resin or plastic materials, reinforced with fibers.

Helmets are available for all kinds of different purposes and are specifically designed for that particular type of sport, line of work, transportation, or combat.

The different designs may spark all kinds of different forms of art. If the ideas don't come right away, don't worry your head about it; they eventually will!
