Today we went to the Musee du quai Branly. This Place is truly remarkable in its placement and integration with in the City. The thing that I enjoyed the most about it was when you were able to see the glass wall, the living wall, and the typical Parisian building.
While in the museum I looked at Porte du Kafiristan : Door, from Pakistan Chitral 19e-20e Siecle. What I found the most interesting about this piece was the placement. Unlike the other artifacts this door was not in a glass case but was framed by an alcove. The door was up against a window leading you to feel that it was a door going to something or somewhere. The rooms around were playing videos that had this wonderful music that made me feel that I would be walking into a lively home. I also enjoyed how the horns design slightly mimics the windows above. It was interesting that as I walked around the other windows just had benches, so it left me thinking that this was very purposeful.
