Focusing on objects from the National Museums of World Culture collections, this exhibition explores the role and signifance of birds in material culture, society and somology. It considers the value placed upon feathers, the symbolism of birds and the display of their images on objects in many cultures across the globe. Although some objects were intended to be functional, were made for specific use or to convey specific meanings, their artistic and visual properties also make many of them striking works of art.
