Starting their military training from infancy, Spartans were one of the most feared military forces in world history. Spartan women are said to have sent their sons off to war with a chilling reminder: Return with your shield or on it. The Ancient Mighty Spartan Facial Battle Mask is made of 20 Gauge brass plating that comes oiled to protect and prevent rusting. The mask is lined with leather and has leather straps with a brass buckle to secure the mask on. This mask has cutouts for the eyes and mouth while still protecting the cheeks and nose. The impeccable craftsmanship of this piece makes this the crown jewel of any Spartan Collection.
