The MET – Part 3

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!

To the east my good men!

As a collector, I really like looking at swords.  My preference, however, is for Japanese swords.  The MET did not disappoint:

Shiny and sharp

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!
