So my brother (R) has been asking & asking if we could go to the Higgins Armory Museum forever. My response was always someday. Well someday came today. The armory is closing December 31st this year & we had to go now or never. To me it was Meh Armor. My brother on the other hand was loving it. History does nothing for me.
I was amazed at the craftsmanship & pride that they took into making these pieces of armor. I mean number 1, it had to protect, but they took the added time to etch intricate details into them, knowing full well that they are going to get hit & possibly destroyed. I was thinking this when looking at them. What if that was a quilt that I have put so much time & effort into making? Would I mind someone wearing it & getting it dirty or torn? Hell Yea. I don’t know how they did it back then.
