A note from the curator

As the assistant to the curator, it is up to you to finish the exhibit.

I am on holidays at this time. I would really appreciate it if you could finish the exhibit. All that remains is to match the labels to the right objects. Make sure as well that the conditions for conservation are appropriate.

Thanks for your help. I will see you on my return.
