In a garden of earthly delights

Hocken Collections head curator pictorial collections Robyn Notman reflects on a plaster bust from 1975 depicting a Neanderthal man, at "A Garden of Earthly Delights", which has been the most popular Hocken exhibition for many years.

The exhibition celebrated 150 years of teaching, research and collecting at the University of Otago, and brought together a selection of rare objects from the university's research collections.

The show, which ends on Sunday, had already attracted more than 3000 visitors, many more than the Hocken's previously most popular show, on motoring, which received 2004 visitors in 2016, Ms Notman said.
