Five copper axes ...

A hoard of five copper axes from Lough Ravel, County Antrim. Now in the Ulster Museum.



I just liked the composition of the display and the prominence of the museum accession numbers ... to me they speak of the importance of collection, curation, and study - all the things a good museum facilitates and fosters.

The Ulster Museum is open Tuesdays to Sundays & is free! Go explore!
