“Wild Handicrafts and Wisdom” Exhibition
Ends in 17 days
In the past, the Amazon Museum of Ethnology and the Amazon Museum of Nature, located in Tsuruoka City, Yamagata Prefecture, used to display and store ethnographic and biological material from the Amazon region. The museums closed in 2014, when conservation efforts began to preserve the exhibits for future generations. With some 8,000 everyday articles and 12,000 biological specimens and stuffed animals, the collection of cultural anthropologist Yoshihiko Yamaguchi goes far beyond the level of a private collection. It includes a wide range of materials, from tools used in the daily lives of the indigenous people of the Amazon River basin to specimens from local life in South America. The objects that were collected over more than ten years since the 1970s through direct communication, including “bartering” with the local people, are raw cultural resources.
