Rites of Power: Oriental Weapons
More than mere objects of war, bladed weapons have also been, throughout the centuries, works of art, handicrafts and jewellery; symbols of power, religious devotion and social status. Above all, they have frequently revealed themselves as objects with great intrinsic beauty. All of these facets are present in this Jorge Caravana collection, taking us on a trip to the East where the Portuguese were present throughout history, from Morocco to Japan.
