All people stories deep inside of them. A story may be theirs or it may be the story they wish to tell of the cultures they have seen and learned to love. This is very much true of the historian and Japanese metalwork expert Michael Zomber. Zomber has become one of the world’s great experts on the creation of such items. His own passion lies in telling the story of the world of the Japanese Samurai and the world they so vividly loved. As is true of so many others, he has also learned to love and adore the world that is represented in the examination of objects such as swords and antique armor. He wants to invite others into this world as well. If Michael’s exoneration shows one thing, it’s what a passion for something can bring.
Educating The Public
He also wants to help the public appreciate the kind of skill that went into such items. As he tells a recent interviewer, he very much sees his role in the world as someone who can help others learn what is to be admired in this world. He also wants to help them appreciate the culture that led to such objects and governed the ways that they could be used in combat both as defense and as an object for warfare. He knows that such objects may have been part of war but they were also part of a means to help keep the peace and offer protection to locals about those who would disturb the social order of Japanese life.
A Core Belief System
Just as the ancient culture of this time was all about the promotion of a core belief system so, too, are the values that Zomber has chosen to embrace in his own life. He is all about promoting the values of honor and adhering to a system of behaving well in his own life. Michael Zomber wants those who view these objects and understand that they can learn how to find their own moral core belief system as well inside. This is why he aims to help provide people with the information they need to fully understand such items. His production company is dedicated to this, and Michael talks about history on his Facebook often.
