A Closer Look is a feature devoted to single artifacts or small,       closely-related groups of objects in the Museum's collection. Readers will find here an in-depth, well-illustrated look at a selected topic, where basic information is complemented by additional layers of analysis and context. Our aim is to foster a better understanding of individual artifacts, their function, and meaning, while also revealing something of the rich and varied worlds to which they belonged.
