Cabinets of natural curiosities were the forerunners of today's natural history museums. Essentially, they were collection, displayed in cabinets, of interesting specimens found in nature, including everything from insects to seashells, to plants and fossils, to montrosities such as two-headed animals. The first ones appeared around 1500 in the courts of Italian princes but, by the following century, they were quite popular and widespread.
Great care went into selecting a diverse range of subjects. They include shells, coral, insects, reptiles, fish, crustaceans and many other natural curiosities. They are presented within a "cabinet" border," permitting everybody to have their very own curiosity cabinet for your own wall!
Comes with something to start your own collection: real dinosaur egg shell from Argentina, included.
