|Basement in the Musee du Quai Branly|
May 17 while jetlagged and rainy outside
the EiffelTower, holds collections of indigenous
art from the Americas, Africa, Oceana...but this
view is the basement!
In general, the museum is very dark, really
too dark, but I loved how the colors glowed
in this spot. The cylinder on the right is
their art collection storage area, somewhat
on view through the glass that goes up
several floors through the museum.
Many museums have most of their holdings
hidden in storage--the trend now is to make
the back rooms and even the work areas
more visible to the public.
