  • “I made five of these helmets in all of the different geological materials. There was something ancient feeling about the shape of these objects. They remind me of Roman gladiator helmets or armour that I have seen in museums. When the style of a modern object, such as this, references an ancient one and is presented in a geological material, it confuses time.” —Daniel Arsham
