Armored 18th Century Peacock – 和田典子
I know it’s a little bit cheap, but I loved this one. I loved it so much that I dared a girl passing by to tell me it wasn’t one of the coolest concepts in the whole exhibition. She agreed. Of course, she later told me that she is also an antique samurai armor nut, and showed me a picture of her posing in a black samurai armor, katana drawn and all! This picture is executed in the style of the battle paintings that were so popular in Japan from around the 14th century to the 18th century. I loved it, and if I’m ever rich I’ll look up the artist and buy it. Or have a real one made for my pet peacock that I will most certainly own. Someday.
