Samurai armor.

A Samurai suit of armor is on display at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas. The museum is hosting the exhibit "Samurai: Armor From the Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Collection," which features more than 140 pieces.

Purple-Laced Edo Period Samurai Armor, murasaki ito odoshi tsumadori haramaki. Although this haramaki was made in the Edo Period (1603-1868), it harkens back to a late Heian/Kamakura period style of armor. As there really wasn't a need for practical battlefield armor during the great peace of the Edo period, older armor styles became back in vogue, like a fashion statement for parades and ceremonies. This piece can be found at the Takatsuki Castle Ruin Historical Museum in Takatsuki, Osaka

Although sometimes desinged for war, sometimes designed for "fashion" during times of peace, one thing is sure-- samurai armor has a rich, artistic beauty.
