A cabinet of curiosities was a place where collected objects were stored and displayed, with a certain taste for heterogeneity and the unseen.

Both private (private collections) and public (institutional collections of veterinary schools, medical schools), cabinets of curiosities have played a fundamental role in the development of modern science even if they kept the traces of popular beliefs of the time (it was not uncommon to find dried dragon's blood or skeletons of mythical animals).

  • Red Gorgon on Brass Base H32x50cm


    Red gorgon on a brass base.

    Red gorgonians (Acabaria biserialis) line the rocky slopes between 20 and 100 meters deep. It is necessary to use a flashlight to appreciate their brilliance, because at this depth, the red appears dark blue.

    Attached perpendicular to their support, the colonized polyp branches filter the water with the current to capture the micro-organisms in suspension.

    Gorgonians, like corals, are animals living in the form of sessile colonial polyps, organized in a tree structure. Each polyp has 8 tentacles which filter the plankton and consume it. The general structure, a skeleton both flexible and hard, called gorgonine do not grow towards the sun (it does not require light to develop) but perpendicular to the current, so as to filter a maximum of water flow.

    A very beautiful decorative object.
