Ancient Helmet - Modern Heads

After 83 years of sharing their collection of medieval arms and armor with the public, the Higgins Armory Museum closed it's doors. In March, 2014, the Worcester Art Museum began exhibiting the core of that collection in a permanent gallery called "Knights." I have visited the new location of the exhibit and I am impressed with what WAM has done with the integration of period art into the arms and armor offering. Several of my favorite pieces from Higgins are not on display at present, but hopefully these will be cycled through as time passes.

I waited for several minutes for this image to take shape. This is the juxtaposed photograph that I had in mind for the final result. For me, at least, it was worth the wait.

If you click on the image below, a new window will open with more information about the exhibit.

Until next time...
