My small object of desire - Pitt Rivers scrimshaw

Elaine decided that discretion was the better part of valour, and that the urchins were a big young for the shrunken heads in the Pitt Rivers. I introduced them to my favourite exhibit, this scrimshaw hunting scene.

I think this polar bear has a fantastic expression. However, I think the wind-up torches, that you could borrow for a better look in the cases, were the most memorable thing about the visit!
