Old impressive original Jingasa Samurai Helmet with the gold makie Sakura in a circle mon, the Cherry Blossoms family crest
Japan, ca. 1800, Edo period
This is a military hat that Samurai (Bushi) used to wear.
Cherry blossoms are the embodiment of beauty and mortality. No one in history personified this metaphor more than the samurai who lived by bushido. It was their duty to not only exemplify and preserve their virtues in life, but to appreciate the inevitability of death without fearing it - in battle, it came all too soon.
Good condition for its age. Agewear as depicted, see photo's.
Materials: wood, makie, fabric
