The Wunderkammer Olbricht, curated by Georg Laue, Me Collectors Room, Berlin, 2010. Via Morbid Anatomy

Maintaining cabinets of curiosities evolved during Renaissance and Baroque. In these collectors’ rooms precious artworks (artificialia), rare phenomena of nature (naturalia), scientific instruments (scientifica), objects from strange worlds (exotica), and inexplicable items (mirabilia) were preserved. They reflected the standard of knowledge and view of the world at that time.
