Pinterest • The world’s catalogue of ideas

Maintaining cabinets of curiosities evolved during the Renaissance-Baroque period. In these collectors’ rooms precious artworks (artificialia), rare phenomena of nature (naturalia), scientific instruments (scientifica), objects from strange worlds (exotica), and inexplicable items (mirabilia) were preserved. They reflected the standard of knowledge and view of the world at that time.

"Look out there... This is what's left of my home. The skeletons of dark and dusty buildings rising from their graven ash. So it's not a matter of going home, you see. It's about building a new one."
