A day at the museum

I spent Monday afternooon at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, taking in my favorite displays. Here are a few examples:
An example of Navajo weaving.
Pacific Native American artwork.

Totem poles.
A large beer making jar from the Amazon area of Peru.

A new mummy box, made by museum employees, to demonstrate skills needed to create one.

Coastal Wyoming...what a concept!
Prehistoric piggish dude...
T Rex pursuing a stegosaurus beyond the grave.

I'm always amazed at the complexity (is that a word...???)in the socalled "primitive" cultures- it's beautiful art! So many details!

Thanks for sharing:-)
