You are invited to ponder on the origins, similarities and contrasts of the objects on display, all from the Gallery's permanent collection.
The origins of any collection of objects on our planet can be traced back to three basic kinds of materials: animal, vegetable and mineral. This display also invites other comparisons, such as cultural origins and cross-cultural references. A further aspect to explore would be the intention of the maker, whether it is functional, decorative or symbolic.
