Curiosity cabinets of eclectic oddities

I recently picked up a copy of Cabinets of Wonder by Christine Davenne, which showcases extremely curious and often extravagant collections of eclectic oddities in homes and museums. Also referred to as ‘wunderkammer’, these cabinets hail from a centuries-old tradition in Europe during the Renaissance. Christine Fleurent shot more than 180 photographs for the book. These include skulls, hunting trophies, Egyptian artifacts and the alleged remains of mythological creatures. The pages are worth a good nosing around in.
