How can you mend a broken heart?
Another question: what do a decapitated toy bear and an axe have in common?
The Otago Museum may not be able to help you answer that first painful question, but
some donations of special objects linked to loss, including relationship break-ups, are being sought for an upcoming Museum of Broken Relationships exhibition.
Museum staff are asking for people who own "an object that won't let you forget" to consider making a donation for "a global exhibition of loss and healing".
Otago Museum marketing manager Hannah Molloy said any objects selected would be displayed from December 21 until March 15 next year.
The museum was working with the Museum of Broken Relationships in Zagreb, Croatia. The Otago Museum was seeking "objects of memory and loss".
Donations are non-returnable and will be exhibited anonymously.
