Elephant Feet Among Curiosities at Museum

 

Sheldon Museum worker Andrea Nelson with pair of desiccated elephant feet, part of a "curiosity cabinet" featured in the exhibit Harry Potter's World. Such cabinets were common during the Middle Ages featuring items that were collected in travels to foreign lands. Another item in the exhibit is a sword crafted from the bill of a swordfish. The exhibit runs through January. photo by Tom Morphet
