Special Exhibition "Evangelion and Japanese Swords"
Special Exhibition "Evangelion and Japanese Swords"

 This exhibition features new swords created by up-and-coming contemporary swordsmiths inspired by the world of the Rebuild of Evangelion series, including “Progressive Knife (sword type),” which is one of the basic weapons of Evangelions, the “EVA TESTTYPE 01 Kabuto,” which is modeled after the armored head of Evangelion Unit-01, and the “Lance of Longinus,” made from Damascus steel.
 Japanese swords have been cherished not only as weapons but also as artistic and spiritual embodiments. We hope that this exhibition helps visitors living in the 21st century to contemplate the traditions that should be preserved into the future.
