The Dragon and the Rising Sun

Traditions of China and Japan


The Dragon and the Rising Sun: Traditions of China and Japan is a new, upcoming exhibit opening in connection with AniMuseum

Discover rare and dazzling artifacts and artwork from the Putnam's vault on display for a limited time with the exhibit The Dragon and the Rising Sun: Traditions of China and Japan!

This exhibit contrasts Japanese Tokugawa Shogunate and Imperial China, featuring comparisons of traditional clothing, edged weapons, art, musical instruments, depictions of dragons and foo dogs.

Featuring artifacts collected by early Putnam contributors like the Ficke and Palmer families, most of The Dragon and the Rising Sun artifacts haven't been on display in decades, and some have never been seen by the general public before.

As you tour this fantastic collection, you’ll familiarize yourself with armor, furniture and more from both regions. You will also contemplate how these cultures differed greatly from one another.
