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.
Accession II, 1968 (1969)
“I like this work because from the outside it looks like a simple, metal box, but the interior is much more complex -- it's filled with thousands of short tubes that create an interesting texture. And this sculpture is even more impressive when you imagine the amount of time it took the artist to attach each tube by hand. I have the urge to touch it every time I see it.”
