This ancient gladiator helm offers little protection but its menacing appearance is sure to intimidate opponents. The complex conical shape was constructed in two sections. A curved outer layer, which protects the face, relies on dozens of hinges to join the individual black panels together. A domed shaped inner section, which protects the top of the head, uses layered bricks to create a curved look. As the model shows, hinges, hinge plates, and other unique elements that move and swivel can push the limits of what is possible with rigid bricks.
