In addition to its protective function, a suit of armour was often used to display wealth and status; if it boasted magnificent etching then it proclaimed that the wearer was a man of substance. There are several such suits of armour in the Burrell Collection. The one that caught my eye is a fine example of German field armour from circa 1520 and it is made in a distinctive style which became popular during the reign of Emperor Maximilian. I used its lines to create a textured pattern that evokes the ornate and elaborate style of those times, and which retains a strong aura of masculinity.
