Photographer's Note

Continuing the theme which I began yesterday...

The Castle in the RICARDO BRENNAND Institute, the museum, houses the most important arms collection in Brazil.
Consisting of pocketknives,daggers,spears,lances and swords, these diverse weapons of war and hunting spun centuries and came from different countries.
Of special interest is the collection of suits of armor, highlighted by the complete set of XVI century knight and horse armor.
Paints by Orientalists, tapestries, classical sculptures, stained glas windows and other curiosities from the XVI and XVII centuries round out the collection and complement the many fine examples of gothic furniture housed in that museum in Recife.

More... tomorrow!
