Triangular-Rimmed Mirror with Three Deities and Two Beasts, Found at Yamichi Nagatsuka Tumulus, Gifu, Kofun period, 4th century

Generation after generation of rulers across Japan had large burial mounds built for themselves during the Kofun period (ca. 3rd century–ca. 7th century). This section displays the regalia passed down from these rulers to their successors as symbols of the legitimacy of each new ruler’s authority. These items were discovered in a group of burial mounds in southern Kyoto and shed light on the nature of power during the Kofun period.
