Samurai: Beyond the Sword
Discover the artist behind the armor. Samurai: Beyond the Sword explores artworks that project the image of the samurai not only as fierce warriors but also as patrons of the arts and sophisticated artists and scholars. See the exhibition beginning March 9 at the DIA.
Head of Emperor Augustus, 1st Century AD
“I can hardly image what it was like to live in Rome during the reign of Augustus. There was so much turmoil, yet people still went on with their daily lives. To me, the statue is a link to the people of the past. ”
