Description

Coat of Armour was inspired by the Muromachi Period of Japanese weapon production during the 16th century. A samurai is defined as “one who serves” (Hanel 2008: 8). Within this warrior code, the samurai exhibited ornate plates of protection that shielded the body, as well put forth “a beauty of both form and texture” (Sinclaire 2004: 8). This sculpted coat design for a woman drew upon the heightened geometric lines that guarded the chest, arms, and thighs of these tactical soldiers.
