Traces of the Living

7 February - 6 December 2020

Bones, teeth and even horns are what remain of living beings. By studying them, we can trace our history and learn about the body structure of vertebrates. Used since prehistoric times for fashioning tools and other objects, bone also has a symbolic and spiritual significance which both tells us about life and evokes its end. The exhibition examines these traces of the past which have fascinated man since time immemorial.
