Cruel Beauty exhibition
A look at our collections truly beautiful, historical objects.
On display 30 June until 6 January 2019.
North Lincolnshire Museum invites visitors to come and look at the conflicting sides of historical objects. Our Cruel Beauty objects were made for dangerous intentions, but when you look at their craftsmanship they are truly beautiful.
Everyday objects of the past that were kept as curiosities or ornaments, such as taxidermy and carved ivories. Do we see their beauty or do we see how they were produced?
