Kabuto & Yoroi nr.: K&Y-6

This piece is original and antique.

This is a very special BAMEN, or Horse-Kabuto from the Edo period.
Some Samurai on horseback also had to provide their horse with equipment against arrows, naginata and yari to protect them which also these BAMEN was part of.
De Bamen was always in the shape of a dragon's head to give additional fear and terror to the enemy .
The mask consists of compressed leather and then impregnated with Urushi-Nuri lacquer. The ears are attached to the head with leather strap and can move freely forwards and backwards.
These Bamen after many decades in Japan found in a barn with a thick layer of dust and other deposits, this is after many weeks and a lot of brushing largely removed, see the photos in found condition.
In the meantime I have been active for many years with Japanese sword art and the Samurai, but in all those decades I have never encountered a Bamen, an extremely rare thing.

In private collection

68cm long and 45cm wide.
