Fancy Knots!

July 5, 2017

SamuraiKnotA coupe of weeks ago, while in Phoenix, Arizona, attending the Annual Conference of the Special Libraries Association (SLA), I was able to stay one extra day (post-conference) to explore a bit and visit family (my nephew and his fiancée) and dropped in on the Phoenix Art Museum.  There were several wonderful exhibits, including a collection of Samurai armor.  The armor seems to have been held in place using cords with a very intricate (and decorative) knotting convention (or at least for show or display purposes).   Very cool indeed (and a most beautiful color as well).
