On a recent rainy weekend I took my daughter to MOA, the UBC Museum of Anthropology. I think it’s maybe Vancouver’s single best tourist attraction, and we have plenty of those. The shelves are crowded with objects made by the hands of Homo Sapiens and many of those objects are heads. Here are ten of them.
This is in the European Ceramics gallery; not usually my favorite bit of MOA. East-European, 17th-century I think.
From the really wonderful Without Masks: Contemporary Afro-Cuban Art exhebition, only running till November 2nd.
This is part of the monumental The Raven and the First Men by Bill Reid.
This looks Greek but is Mexican.
You know, if you’re in Vancouver and haven’t been to MOA in a while and the weather’s lousy, it’s a really good way to spend an afternoon.
