Two simplified, aluminium copies of Henry VIII's 'Hornet helmet', standing on two columns outside the Royal Armouries.

The most unusual Horned helmet or armet (Photo) belongs to a suit of armour made by Konrad Seusenhofer, which was presented to Henry VIII in 1514 by Maximilian I. This helmet was chosen as the symbol of the Royal Armouries in Leeds, which opened in 1996.
