death is all around

Some weeks ago we visited the berlin ethnological museum, which has a rich collection of south & north american, polynesian and african items.
.
"The Ethnological Museum in Berlin is one of the largest ethnological museums in the world. It houses half a million pre-industrial objects, acquired primarily from the German voyages of exploration and colonialization of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It is famous for its reconstructed houses from around the world, its boats, and its many Benin bronzes.
The museum includes one of the first ethnomusicology collections of sound recordings (the Berliner Phonogramm-Archiv)[which is absolutely superb btw], a film archive, a children's museum, and a museum for the blind."
.
Needless to say that a day isn´t enough to see everything.
Haven´t found time to post anything from that day so now´s the time.
