[D] Theme exhibition "Little Knights"

People have been drawing horses since the Paleolithic era, tens of thousands of years ago, but it was about 34,000 years ago that many images of horses began to remain. There are various theories about this period, but it coincides with the period when riding became widespread, especially in the grasslands of West Asia and Central Eurasia. In other words, as a result of the active use of horses for nomadic and military purposes, many horse-themed works have been created. However, these works are not always created for the purpose of art appreciation. Rather, it would have been more meaningful to show one's authority and achievements by drawing a scene of riding or leaving it as an image. In this exhibition, we will introduce small knights who have been represented in bronze products, pottery, burial goods, etc. from works thousands of years ago when they started to use horses as the subject matter. Please appreciate the appearance of the knights who are small but lively.
