“We have 3 mummy coffins on display, all dated ca. 1000 B.C. This week we removed them from the cases, and removed the lids to reveal the decorations inside. We have been photographing, 3D scanning, analyzing, and conserving them (made possible by the Dean’s Competitive Fund).” Ph. #SemiticMuseum @harvardartmuseums @harvardmuseum @harvard

Have you ever wondered what’s involved in decorating one of @chatsworthofficial Christmas trees...? The tree in the Chapel this year is 24 feet tall, garlanded with approximately 4000 twinkling lights, and laden with around 500 decorative baubles! This timelapse is a quick fly-through of the two days it took to install and decorate the tree this week 🌟

International Museum Workers Day was founded to showcase just how many diverse skills it takes to keep a museum running. The theme for International Museum Workers Day IMWD 2019 is sustainable heritage and this has special meaning for us here at Sarmaya. Living traditions form a significant and growing part of our collection. Arts like Tholu Bommalaata are representative of a community’s history, culture and very often, its faith. To the artist, this is not simply an object, it’s a family legacy. To honour this fact, we at Sarmaya engage on multiple levels with the form. For instance, before he buys a Hanuman or a Lankini puppet, our collector Paul Abraham listens to the artists Chidambara Rao and Venkatamma narrate an episode from the Ramayana that places these specific avatars in the right context. Chidambara Rao’s family has been practicing the art of shadow puppetry in Andhra Pradesh for generations and their perspective is vital to how we at the museum preserve and present this art. Once an acquisition is made, we invite the artists to meet with the rest of our team and educate us on the stories and histories of each object. We think it’s critical to record oral traditions like these so museums like ours don’t restrict ourselves to being repositories of objects, but also participate more actively in sustaining a shared heritage.
