I was able to enjoy it comfortably.

This exhibition, along with the Ueno Zoo and the National Museum of Science, is being held as part of a project called “An animal tour in the mountains of Ueno,” and this is the 13th time. This theme was “Animal with a horn”, and there were a lot of works in honor of it. It was seen in a short time because it is all 37 points, but it was a motif of various creatures, so I will introduce the details using the photograph.

Let’s compare the horns! >
First of all, it is a corner to watch while comparing the horns of each animal.

TOC Kiln in China
This is a vase with deer in the crowd. Deer is considered to be an auspicious animal because the pronunciation of Chinese is similar to “Roku”, which means wealth. It seems to be a classic motif because I have seen a jar similar to this several times. The color was also vivid and the beauty which grows in the white ground.

Yoshio Tanaka (see), Yukisai Hattori (picture) “Animal list”
This is a natural animal map that was brought together in Meiji 6. Although it is drawn realistically, the giraffe is just a little subtle w by the way, because the giraffe has five horns, the animals on this page are all creatures with horns.

“Buffalo water Droplets” “Cow water droplets”
These are the water droplets of the Edo period, which are used to pour the inkstone. The left is a buffalo, and the right is a cow and there is a difference in the shape of the horn. But I wonder where the water comes from.

The father of the Lord
This is a work drawn in the Muromachi period, and the theme of the nest father who hated the success. There were two cows around the bottom of the center, and in China the cattle were considered to be a symbol of strength and diligence. By the way, this story is a frequent theme, and when the ear is stained, it is said that it will give the whole country from Emperor Takashi, and it is story that the nest father who has received the invitation also washes the ear by Ying Water (EI), and has taken away saying that such dirty water cannot be made to drink to the cow. If you look closely, you can see that you are washing your ears.

Hattori Yukisai (copy) “Rhinoceros Beef”
This is a India rhino that was replicated in Meiji 5. It seems that the living body etc. are written in the character with accurately conveying the figure precisely. The body looks like the armor is impressive.

“Mt. Amashira Ruton”
This is a Iran from the 6th to the 5th century BC. Because it is a vessel for pouring sake, a small hole is vacant in the tip. I think that it was made many at that time because it is an example of seeing this well. There are also deer and cows.

The “horn” is a big makeover to ○ ○! >
Next, the corner of the work with the horn. People who feel a special power in the horn are processing to various things.

“Kazuno-made hook needles.”
This is a product of the Jomon period (late), which was excavated from the wooden Kamegaoka, Tsugaru City, Aomori Prefecture. It seemed to be an accessory with a deer horn, and the pattern carved deeply magical the atmosphere. I feel the simple strength.

“Wayang Cribtro guru”
This is a traditional craft for the Shadow puppet theater made in Central Java in Indonesia in the late 20th century, and the Horn of the cow is used for the part of the operation Stick. Although it is a shadow, the exotic atmosphere is interesting with a very fine decoration.

“Lotus Grape carving Suttanipata Cup.”
This is a cup made from the Horn of the rhinoceros created in the Qing Dynasty of China. The Horn of Sai was a herbal medicine, and it was liked as a material of the sculpture in the Qing age from a deep hue. The design of the whole was splendid as the right side looks like the Lotus though it becomes a very dense, delicate making. This is a particularly great product in this exhibition.

This is a cigarette Sakhalin made by the Ainu in the nineteenth century. This was a deer corner and was decorated with openwork.

The Horn of God’s errand.
This is a corner of a creature with a connection to faith.

“Kasuga Deer Mandala Figure”
A deer is a symbol of Kasuga taisha. It is said that God landed on a white deer, and the deer are also sacred. The deer in the picture is also splendid and imposing atmosphere.

Maruyama ohyama “wo-beef Figure”
This is a work on the theme of Suharasa Michihara. When it was carried after death, it was said that the place where the cow’m lying here and was not able to move was made a grave, and the cow became the use of heavenly God (that was enshrined as God). It is amazing to see the plump cow in the shade of ink. The feature appeared well as simple as a tail of the castles.

Bulging eyes bo, “Noh Face, corner hermit”
I found a scary noh face! It seems that it is a hermit of India born from the W deer, and it does not rain, and it is a story that the emperor loses power by the strategy by confining the Ryujin. The expression was eerie and very rich.

A fancy animal horn.
The corner of the imaginary animal which does not exist at the end. The awe of the horn created a variety of fancy animals.

Moriyasu Tsurisawa (copy) “Fujin Thunder (mock book)”
Fujin and dragons in the raging Clouds (thunder) The eyes are glowing in gold and a frightening expression is floated. The horn was also large and made me feel dignity. It is a dynamic and powerful work.

Museum (hen) “The birds and the different beasts”
The Birds of the Unicorn It was believed that the Horn of the Unicorn had the work of erasing the poison, and the medicine which entered “Corner” was sold in Edo period. It looks like a real creature w

So, the theme of the horn was lined with various works of all ages and east and west. Because it is a permanent treatment here, I think that it is advantageous when I go to see a special exhibition of Tohaku and watch it together. It was an exhibition which was suitable for seeing with parents and children.
