Miniature Objects, Tiny Shells
One of its own miniature objects
We are putting out in miniature life what we cannot afford to collect or house in real life, in a museum environment.
This is a unique collection of 53 natural tiny shells housed within a 9cm long display table, each specimen under 4mm. Apart from the selection of common seashells for size, form and color, we have the below.
List of Uncommon Shells
– Pink Umbonium Shells
– Star Sand, Fossil Foraminifera
– Shark Tooth
– Zebra Nerites
– Apple Blossom Bivalve Half
We have always approached miniatures as “little objects” instead of a miniaturist (this requires a different ‘eye’). Mono no aware or “the pathos of things” is one reminder in the long way we put together objects we curate.
