Original metal armour for cats and mice

The Canadian artist Jeff de Boer creates stunning, fine armour for cats and mice that come from different historical periods. He started this 30 years ago as a side project, as he studied sculpture. Slowly it became his life’s work.  The armor that he designed, come from time immemorial, ancient Rome, from the Renaissance and the age of the Kreuzüge and the Samurai times. Until now the artist has produced so many armor that he can’t remember the exact number.

Jeff uses different types of metal for his sculptures, but especially bronze and copper. For a tiny mouse armour he needs from 10 to 40 hours and for a cats armor by 50 to 200 hours. He has only tried to create one of the armor of his cat and still have the scars on his hands. Recently, the artist has published a book with his favorite sculptures. When we observe this carefully-made armor, we can imagine exactly how cats and mice would look if they would equip themselves for the eternal war between these two types.
