ALMA in the Art Studio

If you have always wanted to know what a kendi, a teljoor or a bollock dagger actually is, then visit the Art Studio, because there you can see them with your own eyes!

These objects are documented on the ALMA website, a database that couples pre-industrial implements with paintings and prints in which they are depicted. This coupling provides valuable information about the function of these utensils in times part and about the works of art in which they are depicted.
ALMA (Afbeelding Linkt Met Artefact – ‘Artwork linked with artefact’) will go live on Friday, 11 February 2011 at alma.boijmans.nl. The project was made possible thanks to the support of the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (Agentschap NL).
