"Celebrated Swords of Seikado" Exhibition
This event has ended.
Japanese swords have been handed down not only as practical weapon and artwork but also as object of sacred belief and as treasure that speaks of the lives of feudal warlords. The fact that iron-made Japanese swords, which could rust easily, have kept their luster for several hundreds of years proves how the owners of these swords saw spirituality within them and treasured them from one generation to another. One of main attractions of swords is such a loyalty and tradition associated with their owners. This exhibition showcases celebrated swords of Seikado with the introduction of anecdotes about them. In addition to exquisite swords from notable family collections, ones made by in-house swordsmiths of feudal lord families will also be on display.
