[The special exhibition "Animals in Bronze" is being held at the Izumiya Museum of History.
In China about 3,000 years ago, advanced casting techniques were developed and bronze vessels in the shape of animals were made with a superior sense of form. How did they observe animals and look at their figures with their thoughts and feelings? From the new perspective of zoology X archaeology, the exhibition and other exhibits will explore the fascination and mysteries of this artifact.
There will be many events, including special viewing events for children, thanks to the collaboration between the Izumiya Hakkokan and Kyoto City Zoo, both of which are located in Higashiyama, Kyoto. Take this opportunity to visit.
