Why this is a
Masterpiece

It is an important historical object.

History of the Object
Metal plate armor has a long history in Asia, beginning in the Bronze Age. Asian plate armor was made of small flat or convex plates sewn overlapping to an undergarment as in the armored vest pictured here. Asian-style plate armor was lighter than European armor. It enabled more skin to chain mail and because it permitted more body movement it was more effective in hand-to-hand combat.
