Samurai Exhibit…

A few weeks ago we managed to slip by the Portland Art Museum to see a samurai exhibit . . .

 In addition to samurai, there was also many other incredible pieces of art . . .
In the first room we found beautiful ancient Chinese statues …

This one was my very favorite . . .

It felt like an honor to be allowed to be this close to these pieces of work . . .

Another set that truly struck me was the Japanese paintings . . .
Each detail was so extraordinarily perfect. The lines precise and tasteful . . .
The trees . . .
The horses . . .
The gentle slops that show the wind constantly moving . . .
 The samurai suits were too amazing to be real . . .

Very elaborate and in depth . . .

Each item had such careful stitching . . .
It must have taken forever to complete one of these . . .
