Jeanne d'Arc

2011

Materials: bicycle tubes, cardboard, metal hardware

Model: Emma Nolley

Built for the eternal character Joan of Arc, this suit of armor is a historical replica of a traditional suit of armor that was worn during the 15th Century in France. Inspired by the heroic tale of Joan of Arc, this suit of armor is a direct replica of a suit of armor that might have been worn by Joan of Arc.

 

Made entirely from recycled bicycle tubes and cardboard, these materials are transformed from simple utilitarian objects into an exquisite piece of armor just as Joan of Arc transformed from a simple peasant into the savior of

a nation.
