Описание: Miniature oil and kerosene lamps, some as diminutive as 2 1/2 inches high, are direct descendants of prehistoric lamps using animal fat and other oils. Since the miniatures which have been preserved are so small that they cannot have provided adequate reading light, their intended function remains somewhat obscure. Miniature lamps might have found uses in sickrooms, for dispelling a childs "bogeyman," or as parlor courting lamps making a suitable compromise between the requirements of propriety and romantic aura.

Описание: "One of the most popular exhibits at the Smithsonian Institute is a dollhouse. Sitting on the museum`s third floor is the five-story home donated to the museum by Faith Bradford, a Washington, D.C., librarian, who spent more than a half-century accumulating and constructing the 1,354 miniatures that fill its 23 intricately detailed rooms. When Bradford donated them to the museum in 1951, she wrote a lengthy manuscript describing the lives of its residents: Mr. and Mrs. Peter Doll and their ten children, two visiting grandparents, twenty pets, and household staff. Bradford cataloged the Dolls` tastes, habits, and preferences in neatly typed household inventories, which she then bound, along with photographs and fabric samples, in a scrapbook" --

Описание: An extraordinary group of Nasca miniature objects - exquisite works produced in ancient Central and South America for personal adornment, ritual use, and
burial - resides in the renowned Glassell Collection of Pre-Columbian Art. Dating from about 600 A.D., the Nasca miniatures were reported to have been found together in the Ica Valley
of the south coast of present-day Peru. Beautifully crafted from gold, silver, shell, and semiprecious stones, most of these objects were carved from or have elements of spondylus shell,
a rare mollusc.
Frances Marzio brings the Nasca culture vividly to life through her insightful discussion of diverse artworks from the collection - from effigies of warriors and
trophy heads to females and a menagerie of animals - focusing on these fascinating treasures as a group for the first time.
