Phoebe Hearst Museum of Anthropology

I got the chance to visit the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology on the campus of the University of California the other day and it was filled with a lot of great artifacts that tells us who we are:

19th century Kwakiutl House Post
Silk Dragon Robe - Qing Dynasty-China
Pot -Southern Peru- 100BC-800 AD
Wine Cup-Greece 525 BC-50 BC
Obsidian Arrowheads-early 20th century. These arrowheads were made by "Ishi"-He was the last known member of the Yahi Tribe in California

Marble panels from the Guandi Temple in China carved during the reign of the Emperor Qianiang (1735-1796)
Vessel-Peru 100 BC-800 AD
And the star of the Hearst Museum:

Sarcophagus lid of Psamtik I. The first of the three kings of the 26th Dynasty of Egypt-600 BC
The Phoebe Hearst Museum is a must see if you are ever on the Cal campus. I was glad to finally get a chance to enjoy it.


  1. I'd love to see this. As a pre-teen, I wanted to be an archeologist.

  2. These art look totally different and unique..Lovely photography though

  3. That is quite an eclectic collection of ancient artifacts.


Love hearing comments on stuff. Please tell me what you think of the places I have been to. If you like them or not. I love comments.
