Samurai Armor at the Pointe-à-Callière

February 16, 2013

This winter the Pointe-à-Callière (Montreal Museum of Archaeology and History) has been hosting Dr. Richard Béliveau’s collection of Samurai Armor. This is fascinating stuff to draw. Each one of these sets of armor calls on masters skill in metalwork, embroidery, fabric dyes, wood work, scrimshaw.


The show is up until the end of March – so there’s still time to check it out! The exhibit can get a bit crowded, especially on the weekend. And to be honest, it’s a little dark for sketching. But despite all that – I think it’s well worth a trip!
