Ars Gratia Artis

Samurai Cat Armor

For better or worse, there’s something I love about people who put a great deal of effort into producing something beautiful that will never be of any practical use, and that will probably never be accepted as official Art.

Such is the work of Jeff de Boer, who crafts beautiful, fully-articulated suits of armor for cats and mice.

(If the cats have armor, it’s only fair that the mice should too, right?)

He claims that the armor has never actually been used by a cat or a mouse, which makes his Ars Gratia Artis credentials secure.

His Armor Gallery is worth a look.
