Throughout history, barding, armoring of war horses, has been a common practice in many cultures, and chamfron, the part of the armor to protect the head of the animal covering forehead and the nose area has usually been made from an alloy essentially of copper and zinc called tombac, which was preferred for its lightweight. Chamfrons were also used in state and military ceremonies to enhance the splendor of the appearance of the horses. In European museums, there are a large number of Anatolian-origin military weaponry and armaments seized from sieges and wars. For containing the most Ottoman military artifacts, the Museum of Military History in Vienna have a special place worth mentioning. The design of the Sefer Chamfron Object draws its inspiration form a tombac chamfron from the 17th century. The patterns on the other hand, draw their inspiration from a 16th century Ottoman tombac chamfron exhibited at the Los Angeles Art Museum and hatai* and floral ornamentation form another Ottoman chamfron at the Hermitage Museum in Russia. All the relief patterns on the Sefer Chamfron Object are decorated with 24-carat gold, gilt, and antiquated paints. *Hatai: is an Islamic ornamentation and abstraction technique in which the patterns are overly stylized, almost geometrical, where petals of the floral shapes usually twist inwards.
