So… Big chain mail? It’s cool and all, but isn’t “interlinked chainlike metal” is just a pretentious way of saying chain mail?


If you want to be pretentious you have to say “maille”. Prefixing it with “chain” is redundant and out of period :wink: .


Calling these sculptures “chain mail” would have raised a hue and cry from the tetchy medievalist pedants who lurk these woods…
