"Munich's Kunsthalle is currently showing selected pieces from Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller's Samurai Collection in Dallas, Texas.

Samurai-Helmet-8

The selection includes armor and weapons as well as household items,

but I was most impressed by the numerous helmets.

Samurai-Helmet-11

Their design is often unique and highly elaborate,

much more so than in medieval Europe.

Samurai-Helmet-9

Here is a series of pictures from the exhibition with an emphasis on the helmets."
