Crusaders took many shapes and sizes. Some were kingly, some were peasants, and some were even criminals. This Armored Knight On Horseback With Shield and Sword Statue depicts one who has the look of a knight who heeded the Crusade's call to arms. Of course, this statue takes a more realistic look at a crusader's attire as well. Warriors who were used to the climes of Europe had to re-think their battle attire in the Holy Land, and so many knights abandoned metal armor in favor of mail. This knight wears a full suit of mail, as well as the iconic Crusader's great helm, which provides immense protection to the knight's head. In one hand, he carries a shield for good defense, while the other featured a lowered sword, making this knight look ready to spear an enemy on his sword-point. A red surcoat covers the knight's armor and is emblazoned with a single white cross. The knight is mounted on a noble white steed that features various bits of tacking, including a blue cloth under the brown saddle and a decorative banner across the horse's chest. The statue is crafted entirely in polystone, which is a form of cold cast resin that is mixed with powdered stone to give the statue a finer feel, form, and finish. It is also hand painted, which gives the statue vibrancy of color as well as an impressive level of detail. This knightly statue stands approximately 5.25 inches tall. If you are looking for an iconic crusader to decorate your home with, or perhaps to give as a novel gift to those who have an interest in the era, then look no further, because this Armored Knight on Horseback with Shield and Sword Statue is sized to go just about anywhere, while still featuring a level of detail that is nothing short of jaw-dropping.
