Shadows of the Samurai

Today I visited the Fleming Museum to see the exhibit “Shadows of the Samurai.” The pieces on display include full suits of samurai (?) armor, katana (long swords), yari (spear), and yumi (bows), as well as other pieces including a tea set and theater masks.

The exhibit, on display until May, is small, but the pieces are wonderfully preserved. If you are in the Burlington area, and interested in ancient Japanese history, it is definitely worth the $5 admission to see this exhibit. A video walkthrough of the exhibit is available on the WCAX website.
