Here’s a perfect example of a Wundelkammer item! A ‘naturalia’ - which is one of the wonders of nature - taken and brought to be preserved as a collector’s item.
The ‘wunderkammer’ (cabinet of curiosities) is a custom born from the educated classes of the sixteenth century, when under the impetus of Renaissance and Enlightenment, they began to collect extra-ordinary objects.
It was initially started as an extension of the library, and it was linked to the environment in which scholars examined and preserved the objects of their research. As they expanded, they became real rooms with collections of extraordinary objects, very often coming from overseas, to be shown to a close circle of colleagues and friends.
Moving from alchemical workshops and abbey rooms, this habit reached higher levels of society, until it involved kings and queens (famous were Wunderkammers of Rudolf II of Habsburg, Frederick Augustus Prince of Poland, Anna Maria Luisa de 'Medici).
Cabinets of curiosities can also be considered the ancestors of today’s museums, although they lacked the order and classification we are used to.
