Wellcome Collection: Death Exhibition



This has to be one of the most unusual exhibitions I have ever been too. But it also was one of the most interesting and inspiring. Those of you who have not been to the Wellcome Collection museum, you are missing a real gem. Its full of interesting curiosities from different times and cultures and explores the deep connections between art and medicine.

This exhibition explores our attitudes towards death, from artists and different cultures and medical professionals. There are some amazing prints from Albrecht Dure and Goya. Also some pieces from the mexican festival day of the dead. 

There's also a massive bone chandelier it's awesome. 

Definitely worth a visit if you can. Look here for more details.
