Bloody Chariot Driver's Cuirass

Stock #52857

A chariot driver's bloody cuirass made for Ridley Scott's 2000 historical epic, Gladiator. In the film, betrayed Roman General Maximus Decimus Meridius (Russel Crowe) returns to Rome as a gladiator in order to seek revenge against the self appointed emperor, Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix), who murdered his family.

This armor was worn by a male warrior during a battle at the Colosseum in which Maximus and his fellow gladiators are pitted against Legionaries in a reenactment of the Battle of Zama.

Crafted from foam, this armor features a chest-plate molded with the curvature of a muscular male torso. The gold painted cuirass features leather straps that tie the front and back of the armor together at the shoulders, and locks at the waist with numerous buckles. Written on the inside the armor using black marker is "1A Valter.) There is also a strip of fabric adhered inside that matches the material of the characters cape.

The piece has been production distressed with a hole in the chest from where the character was impaled by a spear, and has been treated with stage blood near the wood. The cuirass features signs of wear due to production use and age, but remains in otherwise fine condition.
