Glass-eyed Jury

New exhibit of old stuffed animals at the Melbourne Museum.
A little creepy- the experience is like standing before the Supreme Court of the Animal Kingdom.
(The glass eyes judge us 'guilty'!) - but very interesting.
It seems the museum folk are slowly bringing all the stuff out of storage (after about 10 years)- but the place still seems so empty... I just want to see jam-packed vitrines of artefacts.


  1. I checked out the stuffed menagerie a little while ago...a tad on the spooky side, but well worth it...Yeah I hear you about the emptiness...Have you visited the museum in Sydney?...Now thats a great place...and you can photograph so much more there than in Melbourne..

  2. that is such a good description - the supreme court
