Native Americans Diorama

Posted by: GBG

Of all the items at the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, the miniature models of Native Americans fascinated me the most.

Some settings reminded me of my own place. Some faces reminded me of my own people.

Sadness was an element in my fascination; ‘they’ being ‘ONE OF US’ after all.

With a heavy heart, I hurriedly clicked through the thin glass.

    GRG! Big thank you for sharing. All pictures nicely composed and we appreciate your effort. I know it’s not easy to photograph miniatures like these which in nestled within the glass.

    Just a thought, ‘to make viewers this sense of the size of miniatures, you should have posted at least one picture clicked along some props. May be your hand, cell phone, keys etc.

    when seen from a distance all the pictures here don’t look like a diorama, they look surreal.

    Thanks for sharing your pics GBG.
