Cervantes, in his novel Don Quixote de la Mancha, tells us of a barber who was caught in the rain, and to protect his hat clapped his brazen basin on his head. Don Quixote insisted that this basin was the enchanted helmet of the Moorish king, Mambrino. Don Quixote wishes to obtain the helmet in order to make himself invulnerable.
