Description: Saign Charlestein is an artist who has worked in the film and entertainment industry making armor, knives and swords since 2002. Saign uses timeless metalsmithing skills to produce the finest quality armor in a variety of different metals including aluminum, brass, bronze, copper, steel, and silver. He uses age old techniques such as raising, planishing, chasing and repousse, and engraving. Saign has designed items for The Chronicles of Riddick, True Blood, Star Wars, Everquest, and Heroes among many other well known movies, TV shows, and video games.
This piece is called "Assyrian Helm". It is made from hand-raised copper -- it was created from a single piece of copper! The top is raised to a point and additional ear flaps are attached. Supportive borders are riveted. An aged woven leather coif covers the back.
This helmet was created as a sample for the movie "Year One", starring Jack Black. The helm measures approximately 14-1/2 inches in height and 9-1/2 inches across.
A unique and amazing piece!
