EVENT

Suntory Museum of Art 60th Anniversary Exhibition
The sword: The soul of the warrior

In Japan, swordsmiths, from the Heian period to the present, have created a trove of famous swords. Each of these swords carries its deep history, forged in conflicts from the Gempei War to the power struggles between warlords. From the early modern period on, the sword also became prized as an accessory attesting to samurai status. This exhibition brings together swords forged and polished by the techniques and skills of master craftsmen. In addition, battle picture scrolls and illustrated tales also offer insight into the lifestyles of Japan’s warriors in a rare opportunity to experience their sophisticated culture.
