Animal Worship

Displaying paintings and a selection of decorative art themed on animals, the Nezu Museum's look at zoolatry from antiquity to modernity features a number of true rarities, including the 'Double-Ram Zun', a humorous bronze statue crafted during China's ancient Shang dynasty (c. 1600-1046 BCE). The statue will be displayed here along with its near-identical pair, usually housed at the British Museum. Consisting of around 70 pieces, the exhibition also shines the spotlight on other Chinese bronze wares, as well as on animals depicted in Buddhist and Shinto paintings.
