Heiseikan Thematic Exhibition Room
April 16, 2019 (Tue) - May 26, 2019 (Sun)
Every year at the Tokyo National Museum, an animal-themed exhibition is held in collaboration with Ueno Zoo and the National Museum of Nature and Science.
This year’s theme is “Animals with Horns and Antlers”, such as deer, oxen and rhinos.
This thematic exhibition introduces how people have depicted animals with horns and antlers in artworks and craft objects. To further explore how people have perceived horns and antlers, the exhibition also features imagined representations of deities and sacred beasts with horns and antlers.
