All of the following photographs were taken without a flash (as per the request of the Museum) and without a tripod. My apologies if the quality of the images is less than perfect.
Some of these dolls were retrieved from the Underground Railroad, suggesting that these dolls were played with by African American children.
Baby doll with a bizarrely shaped head.
If you forget to look up you can miss half of what is on display. Here intricately made bird cages sit atop a display of equally intricate needlework samplers.
Just a small sample of the many masks on display
Intricately realised scene of a Latin American festival.
I love the perspective of the church in the background
Again, looking up at some fabulous African silhouette figures.
A doll house (Italian) with curiously flattened ceramic dolls.
Chinese rabbit. One of my favourites.
Rare and superbly realised Indian painting.
Figures from East Africa
I could have gone on photographing all day, however my camera battery ran out (curses!).Pin It
