      Konnichi-wa, y'all:

      An excellent article about an exhibit that is here:

      http://www.dallasnews.com/entertainment/stories/080402dnartjapanesearm
      or.86d5e.html

      Japanese armor has an attitude: Warriors' outfits were designed to
      give the strong impression

      It probably teaches nothing new to most of the people here, but says
      many new things to the general public. And the exhibit itself is
      stunning.

      One of my favourite passages from the article: "[A]rtifice served a
      purpose as well – scaring the enemy and throwing him off-guard in the
      case of the more ferocious images. People played mind games even
      then."
