Chamber of Wonders, Walters Art Gallery, Baltimore

These seventeenth-century domestic Dutch galleries, called wunderkammers, boasted the collector’s foreign artifacts and specimen that had been gathered during explorations to foreign lands. These collections became a sort of trend as worldly travel increased with the expansion of Dutch sea exploration and trade that was occurring at that time.
