Bristol's Badass Burlesque Show
The Musée Georges Labit is a true jewel in among Toulouse’s many museums. Founded in 1893, the museum features cultural artefacts from the Far East and Egypt collected by the museum’s namesake explorer, Georges Labit. The collection is small, but remarkable. The displays are beautifully spaced and lit to give each item chance to shine. Many pieces are displayed out in the open,without a glass divider allowing you to enjoy the ornate detail freely.
The building itself is a work of art, light and airy inside and covered in Moorish mosaic outside.
At the entrance you are greeted by Thai statues, including my personal favourites, the lion and the elephant.
The room loops round leading you through Buddhist statues to Chinese figures.
The basement contains artefacts from Egypt, including two intimidating sarcophaguses and a mummified Egyptian man. There are also some Tibetan artefacts including a headdress and a bowl crafted from a human skull.
Musée Georges Labit is a peaceful space containing beautiful pieces displayed with due care and respect. I highly recommend a visit.
