The treasures in this book come from Richard Béliveau's exceptional collection, exhibited for the very first time at Pointe-À-Callière, the Montréal Museum of Archeology and History.
This is one of the world's most impressive collections in terms of both the historical value and rarity of the pieces and their number and diversity. The armour, helmets, masks, swords and spears, not to mention the Buddhas with their sublime smiles and the admirable tea bowls, embody the aesthetic sense and craftsmanship of master Japanese artisans in the days of the samurai. You will meet legendary warriors whose lives were guided by a code of honour based on loyalty, courage, perseverance, respect and modesty. You will be dazzled by the culture they reflect, one that valued both implacable force and extreme refinement.
