This helmet was found in a burial chamber at Sutton Hoo, Suffolk and is believed to belong to the king of East Anglia, Raedwald, who died in 625. Shot using the Lensbaby Composer at F4.

Superb image Peter. I assume this is the replica or have they renovated completely? I am going to show my ignorance here, but what is a Lensbaby Composer?

The original is in the British Museum.
The Lensbaby is selective focus lens that allows yoy to place a 'sweet spot' of focus where you want in the frame and progressively blurs the rest. you can find more information at lensbaby.com if you are interested (I don't work for them ). You either like this type of image or you don't .

I think the one in the BM is possibly real, it is at Sutton Hoo that they have replicas of most things, but could both be replicas as it is suspiciously clean

Well this one is certainly a replica but as I haven't seen the one in the BM I couldn't confirm one way or the other. Dosen't detract from the beauty of the workman ship though.
