Armor of Henry II of France, 1555.

This is one of the most elaborate and complete French parade armors, and it retains much of its original coloring. The surfaces are covered by dense foliate scrolls inhabited by human figures and a variety of fabulous creatures that derive from the Italian grotesque.
The crescent moon, one of the badges of Henry II (r. 1547–59), is found in several places.
