For the final re-visit of the MET I’ll take you back in time, when Kings and Queens ruled the lands and Knights performed heroic deeds.
It’s Medieval Time!
View the outer casing of knights of long-ago:
View the awesome weapons wielded by such knights!
Weapons like swords:
Lots of swords:
So many swords…
Seriously – just look at all those swords!
As a collector, I really like looking at swords. My preference, however, is for Japanese swords. The MET did not disappoint:
It’s a good thing I had the Egyptian Section still to go because I could have stared at swords for far too long.
Next up: The Cloisters!
