Armor chamber fantasy

I can really imagine this. Suddenly the artist started to see living men inside all those old suits of armor. His technique seems to emphasize this dreamlike state of mind.  Part of the painting is very sketchy and the closest soldier has eyes, but no arms. Another suit of armor seems to be completely empty.
