Medieval Ottoman Islamic Helmet
The use of traditional military uniforms and helmet in various ceremonies is common in Islamic countries. One of the common traditions is the use of old war costumes for theatrical ceremonies, which are performed in the streets, reminiscent of ancient wars.
The most familiar characteristic of Islamic armor is perhaps the distinctive conical-shape helmets, which, with some variation, are found in most European and Near Eastern areas under Islamic rule. One variation is known as a “turban helmet.” Its prototype can be found in the pre-Islamic Sasanian tradition (224–651) of Persia, but its sweeping outline, reminiscent of the domes of mosques, has contributed to this type of helmet being recognized today as decidedly Islamic. Many of the early surviving examples date from the fifteenth century and seem to have been made in Iran and Turkey. Additional protection was afforded by shields, usually of round shape, and constructed—unlike the majority of their European counterparts—of metal.
