Tang Dynasty Warrior Armor 唐甲

Tang figurine of a ferocious warrior encased in a cord and plaque armor (designated by its double breast plates.) These visually distinctive armors consisted of double breast plates in the front and back held in position by two shoulder straps and waist cords. They are favored by officers and are often seen worn by mythical figures and tomb guardians.
