A heavily embellished helmet with embossing and tinning worn by an provocator gladiator. The provocators wore helmets that were directly based in the helmets worn by the Legionaries, just with added face protections and removed cheekpieces.
Roman gladiatorial helmet based on one in display at the British Museum. It was first sculpted in clay, moulded in silicone before being cast in fibreglass and bronze powder. Made for a project whilst studying Modelmaking at Bournmouth Arts University, UK. By James Bedwell
