A “cimier” is a crest at the top of military helmets. It may sometimes represent a blazon, but is nothing more than a symbol. The crest is meant to make the soldier look taller in order to intimidate the enemy. This series represents the highest parts of heads with crests on top of them. Those crests appear symmetrical through their shadows, which underlines the purely decorative function of the object.
