Indo-Persian Armour - Photo Resource

I've been following a very useful board on Pinterest:
The term "Indo-Persian armor" includes armor from Persia, Ottoman Empire, India and other nearby countries made in the Indo-Persian style. In the past terms such as "Eastern", "Oriental", "Islamic" have been used to differentiate between this type of armor and European armor types. "Indo-Persian" includes non Muslim cultures such as Hindu, Sikh and Christian use of this type of armor. Nearly identical armors can have different names depending of the country/culture of use.
Plus there's another I've just spotted and will be following from today:
Prints reflecting the people, culture, clothing, weapons and armor of the Ottoman Empire, Persia, India and related areas. The term "Indo-Persian" includes Persia, Ottoman Empire, India and other nearby countries. In the past terms such as "Eastern", "Oriental", "Islamic" have been used to differentiate between these types of prints and prints from other regions . "Indo-Persian" includes non Muslim cultures such as Hindu, Sikh and Christian.
 I always find resources like these help inspire my painting, especially when I get painter's block. I hope they help you.
