A late 15th century full armour in the German style, based on a wooden statue by Michael Pacher. Made for the Frazier International History Museum in Louisville, Kentucky USA.
The carved wooden statue of St. Florian that this armour was modeled after was completed by the workshop of painter-sculptor Michael Pacher in 1470, and is part of a parish church altarpiece in Germany that he had worked on for over a decade of the late 15th century.
The historical interpreters at the Frazier Museum use this armour for their "Arming the Knight" presentations and longsword and pollaxe combat demonstrations. It was created to specifically fit the wearer who is one of the primary interpreters at the museum.
