Default Power and Fashion Exhibition in Dresden

I have visited the new exhibition Power and Fashion in Dresdner Residenzschloss last Saturday. From the exhibition poster I was expecting to see a lot of beautifully decorated costumes, but the main part of the exhibition was weapons from the Reformation and early Baroque periods, mostly 16th century. They belong to the oldest objects in the Dresdner Armoury.
It is a large exhibition with hundreds of objects, and the photos are allowed there as long as one do not use flash. Alas, I have had only a mobile phone with me... But still here are some pictures.

The display is an artform in itself. Very smart looking.

Oh my gosh, this stuff turns me into one of Pavlov's dogs!! Tatiana, did you buy the catalog? If so, does its photos and text do justice to the exhibit? If one is available I'll try and order it online.
