Spectacles with Holograms and Computers for Seeing Imagined Objects - DMA Collection Online

"A major scientific breakthrough, which allows us to give visual form to our thoughts. Already today, we can program simple mathematical objects and project them immediately in holographic form in space. The next step will be to create cybernetically prepared spectacles through which we can program ideas we are thinking in our brain. Initially, this will allow programming on the basis of simple geometric images. However, we will soon be able to project through these spectacles on a screen…

Rainy Taxi (Installation by Salvador Dali) - DMA Collection Online

The 1938 Exposition Internationale du Surrealisme, organized by Andre Breton and Paul Eluard, is considered one of the most important moments in the surrealist movement. The exhibition was in fact an elaborate installation, a surrealist "city" arranged along "streets." Denise Bellon, who contributed to the exhibition, was one of the founders of Alliance Photo, the photography agency later called ADEP.

The End, from "The Weavers' Revolt" - DMA Collection Online

Käthe Kollwitz achieved instant fame in 1898 when she exhibited a cycle of six prints documenting the Weaver’s Revolt of 1844 at the Great Berlin Exposition. Her work was nominated for a gold medal but was rejected by the Prussian emperor Wilhelm II (r. 1888–1918), who feared her images would spark rebellions among the working class. These two prints, numbers five and six in this cycle, vividly depict the revolt and its aftermath. The anger captured in Revolt is contrasted with the resulting…

Cylindrical vessel with sacrificial scene - DMA Collection Online

The sacrifice ceremony illustrated on this vessel appears to take place at night, as suggested by the dark background. The victim lies stretched across a stone altar, with a dramatic grimace conveyed to the viewer. One executioner grips an eccentric flint in one hand and clutches a giant, red macaw under his other arm; another holds a jaguar. Two figures wear supernatural masks; three have quetzal plumes extending from the backs of their headdresses; one wears a royal headband; and the…

Spirit axe - DMA Collection Online

This massive stone axe embodies the power of man to clear the land, dig and shape the earth, and make the world a habitable place. The cleft in the forehead represents the opening of a path from the human world to the otherworld. In all likelihood, this axe was associated with lightning, rain, and abundance. Full of power during the years of its use, the axe was ritually "killed" by the Olmec themselves, who battered and burned it before burial. The facial features are common among Olmec…

Purchasers had the option of illuminating it…
