These are great! I love the focus on the alignment of the helmets on the shelf. :) Did you make these yourself?

I know a lot about pre christian ages and stuff

It's great, I'm more into paganism as a whole, so I lack knowledge in prechristian stuff (well, maybe except greek history !)

Paganism is a nice subject :)
I've looked in your galleries. You have lots of nature shots.
Are you pagan yourself?
Reply
:iconiamthewoodendoor:
iamthewoodendoor Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
No, I'm just deeply interested in nature and ancient civilizations, I do not follow any of the neo-pagan religions, or anything related to that. I see forest as my temple, to say it so :)

Cool Viking Helmets! Is the horned one on the right Teutonic?
Reply
:iconiamthewoodendoor:
iamthewoodendoor Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
I highly doubt it. The helmets used by the teutonic order were highly decorated, and the horns were of real animals most of the time. I think it's just a syncretism of a lot of different cultural elements.

They use real animal horns? I never knew that. Must've have been more cheaper and less time-consuming than making metallic horns.

When I think of Teutonic Knights, I hear this in mind:[link]

This photo was taken at a fun fair, I hear? Well, from the way that I'm seeing it, I think this picture is telling me that it was taken at an armoury, even if the helmets do appear too smooth to be made in an armoury! :'D

Congratulations on the DD~ :clap:

A fun fair ? Nope, a medieval fair :)The biggest in France actually. Oh, they were to buy, and made with real iron, I can tell that :)
Thank you !

My bad on providing the wrong kind of 'fair', but WHOA, real iron?! :wow: That's... That has got to be beyond wicked! And on sale too?! When was this medieval fair held, if you don't mind me asking?
Reply
:iconiamthewoodendoor:
iamthewoodendoor Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Of course it's real ! It's made for reenactment and those kind of stuff :)
It was in November, near Paris. I don't know where you live, but there is a lot of medieval market in every country :)

That could prove some use for a Middle-Earth-themed fair ! (I know one or two in France, I'd really like to attend them.)

Are these helms of different cultures?
the closest one to the viewer on the top rack looks like a Scandinavian type to me, and the three with cheek guards look Roman or Greek, but I don't know the rest.
