Two 14th c. German Effigies

Some very nice close up photos are available here.

Gunther Von Schwarzburg (1304-1349) and Burkhard von Steinberg (d. 1376). It looks like Burkhard's mail does not entirely cover the inside of his elbows. His greaves would be an interesting project.

I took those last June, along with similar studies of a few more effigies. I'm ashamed to say the only reason those made it onto the web in the last 12 months since my return is that heated discussions about both of these came up on the Armour Archive forum, and I wanted to provide people with better evidence. I'll try to find time to get a few more on the site, and will drop you a line when I do.
