Welcome to a collection of objects that explores our beliefs and the realities that underpin them.
This website is a virtual museum for you to wander through as you wish. All the exhibits displayed are small objects made by people to use, to give away, or more often to sell. What they have in common is that they all represent or reflect a belief system in some way. They often have complicated stories to tell. Who made them, and why? Who bought them, kept them, used them or discarded them? Some of them are exquisite. Some of them are tacky and 'faked' for a tourist market. But they all have a strong visual appeal and they all aim to impress us with a truth of some sort. If we read them carefully there are often different levels of belief and conflicting motives in a single object.
Go to The collection page and browse through the exhibits. I’ll tell you what I think about them. You can see what you think.
