Perlesduquai – treasures from the Quai Branly Museum

@perlesduquai.

Meticulously scanning the online database of the Quai Branly Museum, Laurent Granier daily presents multiple examples from their holdings on his twitter account @perlesduquai. Only objects from the reserves that are not on view are selected – with 267.417 items in the collection enough for a lifetime of twitter fun.
