Lions Escape…

Throughout the week I have been collating a number of objects from the Living Cultures collection which are due for inclusion in the forthcoming Living Planet gallery. Objects include swords from the British armed forces and a very special red Chinese vase.

Vase, China, 19th century. Living Cultures collection, The Manchester Museum.

The one thing each of these objects has in common is that they depict a lion in some way, shape or form. I’ll let you use your imagination as to why and how they might be displayed in the new gallery…

Military swords, United Kingdom, 19th century. Living Cultures collection, The Manchester Museum.

For more information about the soon to open Living Planet gallery take a look at the Nature Manchester blog at:
