This fabulous piece of American folk art was likely worn in battle by an unknown soldier who later became a disillusioned protester. Actual “war used” helmet in original red psychedelic paint w/black tape for stripes; the opposite of the white stripes of the American flag (symbolic of death or mourning). At top is painted a moving peace symbol, the ultimate personification of the Peace Movement this was a part of. Hippy leather string has replaced the missing chin strap.
