Treasures: World Cultures from the British Museum

The Treasures exhitibit at the Provincial Museum is over. If you missed it, that is too bad! It was spectacular and as with all exhibits at the museum, it was very well done. If you hear of future exhibits, go next time, you will not be disappointed.
From October 23, 2009 to January 10, 2010, the Royal BC Museum is proud to present the Canadian premiere of Silver of the Stars – a stunning collection of contemporary silver designed by, and created for, some of the biggest names in film, music, fashion, theatre and literature.

Each of 10 celebrities, including Sir Sean Connery, Billy Connolly and Ewan McGregor, partnered with one of 10 Scottish silversmiths to create elaborate drinking vessels. Based on the theme “a drink with a close friend,” the celebrities’ answers to a series of questions became the inspiration for the finished silverworks: the motorcycle handlebars on Ewan McGregor’s coffee pot and mug are reminiscent of a world-journey McGregor once made, and novelist Ian Rankin’s desire for a reflection of Scotland’s industrial past comes across in a drink tray modelled after the famed Forth Bridge in Scotland.
