Maximus' (Russell Crowe) General armor from Ridley Scott's Academy Award-winning historical drama Gladiator. Maximus wore his Roman General armor while leading the army of Marcus Aurelius (Richard Harris) in a final battle against the barbarian tribes of Germania.
This set of costume components was made for production and consists of a hand-painted, foam-lined rigid urethane armor cuirass with griffin and wolf emblems and attached layered shoulder armor straps tied with leather, a rust-color wool tunic, and a foam-padded resin General helmet with a wolf emblem to match the cuirass and a brown synthetic hair plume at top. The lot is in good overall condition with some wear from handling and age, including paint chipping throughout and deterioration to the foam padding.
Estimate: $15,000 - 20,000
