Afro Comb

I visited the Fitzwilliam Museum for this project for their exhibition on the Afro Combs. I had researched briefly into the combs and looked at images of them and felt that they looked really interesting and could be a good object to base this project around. Below are images and information of combs that appealed to me before I had visited the museum.

Bear Jugs

Whilst in the museum these bear jugs really interested me, I liked the appearance of them, their features and the materials that they had been made from, however, I disliked the history that was attached to them.
