Set temple guard helmet used in the production of the 1982 fantasy classic Conan the Barbarian. Orphaned boy Conan (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is enslaved after his village is destroyed by the forces of vicious necromancer Thulsa Doom (James Earl Jones), and is compelled to push “The Wheel of Pain” for many years. Once he reaches adulthood, Conan sets off across the prehistoric landscape of the Hyborian Age in search of the man who killed his family and stole his father’s sword. With beautiful warrior Valeria (Sandahl Bergman) and archer Subotai (Gerry Lopez), he faces a supernatural evil.
These were worn by the guards while they at Thulsa Doom’s pyramid. The helmet is made of metal, with snake-scale detailing and flame designs at the crest. Leather cheek and neck guards hang down to protect the wearer, while a white cloth scarf is tied around the helmet brim. Rubber diamond detailing runs down the cheeks and a leather liner is fitted internally for comfort, with straps and buckles to secure the helmet under the wearer’s chin. Well-used, the helmet displays scratches and corrosion to the metal plates and cheek guards.
