This glittering gold head represents Saint Eustace and was thought to contain relics of the Christian saint. Today is his commemoration feast day in the Christian calendar. According to legend, Eustace was a general under the emperor Trajan (r. AD 98–117) who was converted to Christianity while hunting, after seeing a vision of a stag with a luminous crucifx between its antlers. Some time later, after victory in battle, he refused to join in thanksgiving to the Roman gods and was burnt to death. This reliquary was made in Basel around 1200. #Basel #relic #reliquary #gold #gemstones #Museum #BritishMuseum

"We aim to be understandable by 16 year olds" that's the weakest excuse I've ever seen
Btw the context for this is that the names were too long to fit in the museum labels and a couple of names were identical to the other which caused a bit of confusion or something I really would've wanted to see these people deal with Roman names but that's another story, but it really still isn't an excuse to just throw around that Asian names are too confusing for young people can we at least all agree on that

For Turquoise Tuesday, here's another favorite from the British Museum's Victorian jewelry collection. Per the museum notes:

Circa 1840-Silver brooch, with a gold backing and pavé-set with turquoises, in the form of a dove with ruby eyes and a pendant heart. The wings are spread and engraved with feathers on the reverse with a compartment for hair in the back of the heart.

BRITISH MUSEUM TUBE STATION
24 September 1933: The British Museum tube station in Central London officially closed to make room for the Holborn Station (pictured) several yards away. In 1989, the surface building was demolished and it's been abandoned ever since.
The station is reportedly haunted by the daughter of an Egyptian pharaoh named Amen-Re, who's currently in the nearby British museum. Her wails can supposedly be heard from the nearby Holborn Station.
