Travel back in time and discover the life, culture, and pageantry of the revered and feared Japanese samurai warriors through more than 140 remarkable objects from one of the best and largest collections in the world. Samurai: Armor from the Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Collection features 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 through the centuries and examines the warriors’ history through works of consummate craftsmanship and exquisite design. Among the highlights of the exhibition are warriors’ helmets of lacquered metal, adorned with emblems often inspired by nature, which signaled the status of the wearer, differentiated samurai from each other, and frightened the enemy on the battlefield. Combat-ready samurai in full regalia will be shown in suits of intricately crafted armor on similarly armored steeds. The exhibition also includes beautifully designed accoutrements used for both battle and ceremonies.
