Gems Within: Animals

Gems Within:


The title of this blog post, Gems Within, is the primary theme of our Founders' Gallery here at the Whyte Museum. The purpose of this gallery is to showcase treasured objects from the Museum collection. In this post, we have selected a handful of those objects and art centred around a theme, animals.
