A bit random, not really Japan-related, but I came across this 12-13th century armor piece at the Metropolitan a few months ago, which the gallery label says is one of only two extant examples of this particular style of armor, unique to China's Yunnan province.

It shows how a good design can be found in many places. Nerigawa is light and resource thrifty to make. Nice piece. John
