De Young and De Lovely

We spent the afternoon at the De Young museum in SF. Very interesting.

Here, I found where the Klingon Bat’leth originated. I believe they were called cult hooks in the museum guide, but we knew what they really were.


And the later ceremonial version below:


Non-Klingon, but also non-human (below). This thing was *much* creepier in person than it is in this picture.


Working with what you’ve got: Mangrove roots = manly johnson (below).

I’ll put the rest of these on Flickr or Picasa – some of them are fairly interesting, Klingon inspired or not.
