Museum Sketchbook # 6: Relic Case
Hancock: Relic Case (Charcoal and compressed charcoal across two pages of A4 sketchbook)
More a cabinet of curiosities than a modern presentation of scientifically catalogued archaeology, this glass case is just the sort of collected wonder I loved as a child, so it was a delight to find it still there when I was drawing in my fifties.
Sadly, I'm sure the new version of the museum will have declared this sort of exhibit passé .
