    Parade armour of Henry II of France ~ 1555 ~ Steel, silvered and gilt. This is one of the most elaborate and complete French parade armors, and it retains much of its original coloring. The decoration includes, at the center of the breast, a Roman warrior receiving tribute of arms from two kneeling females and, on the shoulders, Apollo chasing the nymph Daphne (front) and Apollo with the slain monster Python (back). The crescent moon, one of the badges of Henry II appears in several places.
