I have collected 1:6 scaled figures for six more years without me even realizing it. The dolls I bought are from different themes. While I’ve bought figures from various themes, my collection follows certain principles. Yes, the themes of the figures I’ve purchased include the Ming Dynasty of China, the Warring States period of Japan, and some European medieval knights. As you can see, these themes are almost within the same historical era.
Surely the 16th and 17th centuries were fascinating times—a period when the world truly began to come together. Different from the 15th century people in regions mostly playing within their own circles, by the 16th century, the collisions of civilizations became increasingly intense. In Japan, the Warring States period within its borders was drawing to a close. Hideyoshi, after unifying Japan, launched invasions into Korea and Ming Dynasty. Simultaneously, Western powers such as Spanin, Portugal and the Netherlands, having accumulated wealth through in southeast Asia and attempted to make an impact on the ancient civilizations of the East.A soldier from Java clad in European plate armor, wielding a Japanese katana fighting for the Ming Dynasty against the Qing military, this really makes sense.
Based on this intriguing history, I am planning to establish an online museum with a 17th-century 1/6 scale figure theme. The exhibition format would likely involve creating a world map and inviting collectors to submit contributions and exhibit. As for the specific content, further discussions will be done after the website is set up.
By now I have registered domain 17-museum.com, searching for an hosting service with reasonable pricing. Just look forward to seeing it set up.
