Siberian Bear-Hunting Armor To Hug Your Enemies

Isn’t this a fascinating object?

When we found this Siberian bear-hunting armor on the web we immediately thought: “this could be the best “dress” to wear to hug a dear enemy.”

Hellraiser creators might be inspired by this armor in the making of that legendary film.




This armor is made of leather trousers and a jacket. The iron helmet, with hundreds of nails, is icing on the cake.

To this day, only a full suit of armor survives. You can find it at The Menil Collection in Houston, Texas. The armor has been purchased in Paris during an auction in 1974.  Its owners call it “The Wildman Suit”.

This relic is part of the exhibition Witnesses to a Surrealist Vision. Which includes works by visionary artists Andre Breton and Max Ernst.

The exhibition is a recreation of the “Wunderkammer” (The Cabinets of Wonders). This showcase was well-known in 1800 when explorers were buying all kinds of objects.

Was this armor strong enough to handle a bear attack?

There is no evidence. Surely Siberians have been hunting bears for centuries. Therefore their experience suggests that this hunting protection was effective.
