Event Details

Nearly as universal as war itself has been the inclination to decorate the weapons of war. People through time and in nearly all cultures have painstakingly embellished their weapons. From maces, clubs, daggers, and spears, to shields, helmets, and entire suits of armour, this exhibition offers more than 150 striking examples of weapons that are also extraordinary works of art.
