armor. Probably, a museum exhibit was the model for the drawer.
An interesting perspective seen from European prospect of that time. The illustration is highly detailed. The face shield (menpo
), however, looks slightly strange.A wonderful gift
. The woodblock print is supplied with a passepartout.
