The spirit and visual richness of the Samurai culture speaks to us today through films, manga and personal experience. This collection, with pieces dating from the 1890s to the 1990s, serves as inspiration for this group of western and eastern artists as a direct link to the past that also stimulates new forms of creativity. This is Kurt's Ode to Edo and the traditions that honoured the essence and legacy of the samurai.
