Armor of the Met Playing Cards

This deck of premium quality Playing Cards contains 52 of the Met's most compelling Armor exhibits.

Arms and armor have appeared in virtually every culture through the millennia, though their styles, materials, and applications are vast. Comprising some 14,000 objects, The Met collection of arms and armor is one of the most comprehensive of its kind. From a magnificent Japanese mask (1745) bearing the ferocious face of Jikokuten, one of the Four Kings of Heaven, to an exquisitely decorated British suit of gold and steel (1527) probably forged for King Henry VIII, this deck presents highlights and hidden gems of the Museum’s renowned Department of Arms and Armor.
