Takatsuki City has approximately 470 ancient tombs, including Imajozuka Tumulus, which is said to be the true mausoleum of King Keitai (Emperor), and many clay figures have been unearthed there. In order for children to become familiar with these haniwa, the museum changes the exhibition theme every year, and celebrates “Haniwa Day” on August 20th every year during the summer vacation (the city has named it “Takatsuki, a city of history”). (Established in 2010 to promote the festival nationwide), we will be holding a special exhibition featuring clay clay excavated from the Imajozuka Tumulus and other areas in the city.
This year’s special exhibition has the theme of “Haniwas playing sound” and will introduce clay figures related to sound excavated in Takatsuki City and musical instruments from the Kofun period. In addition to the drum-shaped clay excavated from Imajozuka Tumulus and the horn clay clay from Hirugami Kurumazuka Tumulus, there are sumo wrestler-shaped clay figures with bell decorations, horse-shaped clay figures, and musical instruments.
