War Elephant

Mughal War Elephant armor, 17th century, made of sheet iron panels and mail. Some of the panels have designs of elephants, fish, peacocks and lotus flowers hammered out. The elephant armor is so heavy that it takes three members of staff to lift the headpiece alone. Some of the panels are missing, revealing the way cotton would have been used under the armor for the animal's comfort. Royal Armouries in Leeds, England.
