(2012).” The photos document old fashion displays, made in wood, formerly used to present small objects in Museum showcases. Due to contemporary preservation rules adopted by Museums and Galleries these wood displays are now an anachronism. Every photo is accompanied by a short technical file and description of an absent object that should fit in to each display.
