I really admire the warrior's sword.
Actually I've never seen a real Mongol sword before and then I figured out that it resembles its Arab counterpart.

Thank you.
Yeah, Arabians and Persians rooted to Nomadic lifestyle and Mongols are Nomads and somethings so similar in both side.

It's a bit complex - on the arabic side, they used more straight swords at first, but after the conquest (and islamification) of Iran, the Shamshir scimitar design got very popular around, and flowed in the 'House of Islam'... for the turkish and mongolian peoples, I suppose it's sometyhing they did themselves, for the advantages brought of a curved blade.

May be the Islamic symbol New moon's shape is found on the more curved blade of the Scimitar.

I heard this is something predating Islam, the crescent symbol, but possible

Yeah the fertile crescent of the arab peninsula, I believe.  Holds religious significance probably (I don't know much that much about arab civilization or islam though).

Or maybe from the premuslim time of the turkish peoples...

I read on wiki about the fertile crescent, which is very close to the arabian peninsula.  I suppose the crescent is synonomous with islam.  And they call it a crescent, so it probably is related.  Anyway, that's my opinion...

This is soo good. I have to admit, its one of the best Mongol Warrior drawings I have ever seen. Its hard to believe that its actually a drawing. The details are amazing, especially the armor, shield and the horse. Good job man. Please do more drawings of Mongol warriors. I would love to see more from you.

Amjilt!
