Samouraï exhibition at Quai Branly

What comes to your mind when you hear the word "Samouraï"? We usually think of fierce warriors slaying their katana swords, lashing on their enemies with style. Well, this exhibition show us other sides of the Samouraï's world. Through the armor pieces presented, you can see they cared about beautiful details and they had a sense of humor.

helmets inspired from fantastic creatures
 helmets inspired from sea creatures
from more diverse inspirations...
the one in the middle is an eggplant helmet

Horses get theirs too

Masks are always my personal favorites
