The MFA will soon present the fascinating exhibition “Samurai! Armor from the Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Collection”.
It will feature the extraordinary artistry of the armor used by samurai—the military elite led by the shoguns, or warlords, of Japan from the 12th through 19th centuries. The exhibition illustrates the evolution of the distinctive appearance and equipment of the samurai warrior through the centuries and examines their history.
The exhibition will span from April 14, 2013 – August 4, 2013, located in the Ann and Graham Gund Gallery. For the official page on the MFA site, visit http://bit.ly/YdVwDa
Core students are encouraged to use this opportunity to experience this aspect of Japanese culture!
