A replica of the helmet worn by Ned Kelly and made for the 2003 film Ned Kelly starring Heath Ledger as Australia's most infamous bushranger.

Ned Kelly's armour is iconic, thanks in part to the 'letterbox' eye-slot on the helmet. This 360-degree view provides us with a good opportunity to see the armour in its entirety.

It documents the realistic work of costume designer Anna Borghesi and her team, as well as armourer John Fox, especially since the armour worn by Ledger is actually made of fibreglass and not metal.
