Art of the Samurai: Japanese Arms and Armor 1156-1868

Next week, an exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art opens on Art of the Samurai: Japanese Arms and Armor.  See http://www.metmuseum.org/special/se_event.asp?OccurrenceId={F8E9ACA7-5B17-471F-9394-D298E7E53159}.  Should be a good show.  They’ve got some great pieces in the collection and this looks to be supplemented by some rarely seen pieces.  The Met is hailing this as the first exhibition devoted to Japanese Arms and Armor conservation.  I’m not sure if that’s true, but it will be great to see some works on paper and many of the spectacular pieces you rarely get to see.  I hope to get in there and take some pictures, if possible.  Art of the Samurai: Japanese Arms and Armor, 1156–1868 October 21, 2009–January 10, 2010 The Tisch Galleries, 2nd floor.

  1. Re your miniatures page query, our figures are Museum miniatures for the unarmoured ashigaru ones, and Perry for the Ikko-Ikki and the dismounted Samurai figures. Glad people liked the game!
