UMMA Object Specific Fields






Query builder

A very quickly assembled group of objects that could be interesting, not necessarily for the status of the artist. Of these I think that a couple of the gold weights--particularly those that can be easily connected to known proverbs-- would be a nice tie-in back to Ray's lecture and to the exam--as I included a Sankofa in the test. I basically snapped up a few things in different media and from different historical moments. Laura will know which objects (if any) of these have noteworthy backstories. That would be another criterion for inclusion.

This is random selection is the result of a very quick skim through the rich holdings of the UMMA, so feel free to ignore or substitute other objects. In terms of getting students to really engage with them, less is more, as always...
