This past weekend I strolled the galleries with Laura and her husband, Chad, plus our friend Lauren. It was nice to head to some of the galleries I don’t normally get to with friends, but also see the usual excellent dino gallery too. Here’s some photos! (Also yes, shush, I know I work here but it’s nice to stroll about with friends!)
Bead sheet – from Africa. I cataloged a few things like this back at the Uni of QLD Anthro Museum.
Beautiful tapa cloths – I can’t remember exactly where these were from, but they’re generally from the Fiji/Samoa region. They’re incredibly beautiful and detailed.
Ceramic ladels from Mesa Verde – I visited MV national park back in 2009. It’s gorgeous there, and they have quite a decent amount of info/displays about the culture, it was cool to see the section at the ROM from that area.
Fierce statue, in the Joey and Toby Tanenbaum Gallery of China
One of the design pieces in ‘Form Follows Fashion’ about designing clothing for those sitting a lot, primarily in wheelchairs.
Another piece from ‘Form Follows Fashion’. So interesting!
Dem bones – mammal fossil/skeleton display area
The geometry of the crystal building looking south from near some elevators – it looks like some sort of dystopian SF landscape.
