Using the magic of digital photography, our Research Assistant and I went through about a dozen shots while laying on our backs in order to get the picture above. It is a picture of our white museum gloves, which we use to handle artefacts. Like we tell our visitors (especially our young ones), the oils in our fingers are damaging to the pieces; therefore we need to use white cotton gloves while working with our collection.
We have many, many pairs of gloves!
