Autumn Exhibition at The Ashmolean Museum Broadway

Japanese Ghosts and Demons : Woodblock Prints.  Normal admission charges apply.
Giant spiders, dancing skeletons, winged goblins and hordes of ghostly warriors are among the spooky subjects depicted in this exhibition of woodblock prints from the Ashmolean's collection. The exhibition explores fascinating and varied tales from Japanese myth and legend, including ancient ghost stories, fabled warriors, historical battles and strange tales of the supernatural. Belief in the supernatural is deep-rooted in Japanese folklore. According to Japan's native Shinto religion, gods reside everywhere - in the forests, the fields, the mountains and in the home. The arrival of Buddhism during the sixth century AD brought with it a host more supernatural beings, and many Chinese tales of spirits and monsters were also absorbed into Japanese tradition.
