before the new year...


I went to see the Art of the Samurai show at The Met, closing this weekend. There was a "no photography sign" that i obeyed.

An amazing show of treasures mostly from Japan. Some of the pieces were on loan for a short period of time (shorter than the duration of the show) and they were swapped out with other objects, which was a drag, because i wanted to see this helmet. Oh well... next life time right?

Feeling a little disappointed, i wandered around the museum aimlessly, and ended in the French Art Deco rooms... Yikes!



i couldn't quite capture with my camera the glitzy-ness of this mural-thing.



i don't know what is crazier, this or the what seemed like a hundred super sharp samurai swords a saw earlier...
