Описание: "One of the most popular exhibits at the Smithsonian Institute is a dollhouse. Sitting on the museum`s third floor is the five-story home donated to the museum by Faith Bradford, a Washington, D.C., librarian, who spent more than a half-century accumulating and constructing the 1,354 miniatures that fill its 23 intricately detailed rooms. When Bradford donated them to the museum in 1951, she wrote a lengthy manuscript describing the lives of its residents: Mr. and Mrs. Peter Doll and their ten children, two visiting grandparents, twenty pets, and household staff. Bradford cataloged the Dolls` tastes, habits, and preferences in neatly typed household inventories, which she then bound, along with photographs and fabric samples, in a scrapbook" --

Описание: An extraordinary group of Nasca miniature objects - exquisite works produced in ancient Central and South America for personal adornment, ritual use, and
burial - resides in the renowned Glassell Collection of Pre-Columbian Art. Dating from about 600 A.D., the Nasca miniatures were reported to have been found together in the Ica Valley
