The imaginative new display brims with time-honoured craftywork techniques and modern technological discoveries, with creations ranging from a life-size crochet bear to a Ghanian lion-shaped coffin. Other highlights include a ceramic eye patch, puppets from Wes Anderson’s film ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’, Steven Hawking’s prosphetic Japenese steel suit and – our favourite – a high-heeled shoe guitar. Talk about glam rock.
