Red face No photos available but, instead...

Pity there were no photographers in the 16th century, David; but there were painters and chroniclers to leave us images ... and history .

By the way ...

It is admittable that, the Javanese features & attire as in the watercolor executed by a naive artist of the period, do not correspond as whole to reality but, the use and purpose of the dirk is as precise as described by Tomé Pires (1465-1540) and Fernão Lopes de Castanheda (1500-1559)

I was searching cameroonese pictures for something completely different, but I thought those might still be interesting.

Always thought they were the descendants of the Gladius, that one is more like a spatha
