Knights in Shining Armor Exhibit Comes to Houston
The term "knight in shining armor" isn't just for romantic fairy tales. Chivalry and duty are bound together by the masterpieces of European arms and armors from the Medieval and Renaissance ages all the way up to the 1800s. In the Middle Ages, knighthood was closely linked with horsemanship and jousting and was considered high fashion among the nobility of the 15th century. The provocative beauty and exquisite craftsmanship of the armor revealed the figure of the knight, his code of chivalry and his battlefield role. Learn about all this and more when the Knights in Shining Armor Exhibit comes to the Houston Museum of Natural Science. See full suits of armor, helmets, corselets, shields, swords and other weaponry in an exhibit exploring the themes of love and war, jousts and tournaments, and historical context. You'll marvel at the still-life (Natura Morta) armor installation, even as you whisper silent words of thanks for being born in the era of modern-day stretchy pants. Your voucher gains you entry on any date through the exhibit, which is in Houston until May 2018.
