Cat and Mice Armour.

cats-and-mice-armour-jeff-deboer-69Canadian artist Jeff de Boer creates impressive metal armor for cats and mice based on different historical eras.
He started making these sculptures over 30 years ago as a little side project on his sculpting class.
The side project eventually turned out to be the work of a lifetime.
From Ancient Rome gladiator armor, to Renaissance knight armor suits – over these years Jeff has created too many of them to count himself.

Jeff uses various metals for his creations, but mostly bronze and copper.
One tiny mouse armor takes from 10 to 40 hours to make and a cat armor takes from 50 to 200 hours.
He has tried putting the armor on his cat only once, and still has the scars.
Recently, Jeff published a book featuring some of his favorite pieces.
Looking at these meticulously crafted armor, we can’t help but imagine that this is what mice and cats would wear in the eternal war between two old enemies.
