“Premiers Templiers en habit de guerre a cheval” (1783). An early modern image. Clearly in the 17th century they did not have a good concept of armor. The knights appear to be wearing masks, not helmets. A rather surreal sight. I was told that these must be early helmets with flat tops. So, it must be an unfortunate angle chosen by the artist.
