“Imilac” meteorite

In the meteorite classification, Imilac belongs to a small group called pallasites. They are intermediate meteorites between stony and iron meteorites. The metal does not constitute a conjoined and uninterrupted structure here, but it occurs in the form of larger and smaller fragments of meteorite iron fused with a mass of silicate minerals, mainly olivines.

A spherical vessel with a reclining figure on the spout

“Entombment”

Sculpture “Bust of Róża Loewenfeld”

The sculpture presents a classicist bust of a young woman with a slightly bent head turned to the right. Admittedly, a faint resemblance of the artistic vision of the German sculptor to the actual figure raised doubts, but how many times have images been idealised, beautifying the portrayed individuals and making them look younger?

Edward Dwurnik, “Hunting a Dangerous Villain”

The painting was a response to Martial Law in Poland. It shows an imaginary city, which – as is the case with the majority of Dwurnik’s paintings – we view from above. At first glance, everything seems tranquil, stable and safe. Only a searching examination reveals the drama of a city taken over by the army.

The clay vessel has a squat body, narrowing at the bottom and situated on a thin base. The neck of the vessel is wide and ends with a cavitied flange. The body has been decorated with a meander and a winged figure with oblong objects in its hands, bent over the capital of an Ionic column. The decorations have been made in accordance with Greek black-figure pottery.

Vessels for fragrant substances

The presented vessels have the shape of small amphoras and are made of clay. The former is decorated with primitive plant patterns and the lug has been, it seems, knocked off, with the body extending at the top. The latter vessel has a pair of lugs and a body extending at the bottom, on which a relief representation of two figures occupied by an object is visible. The irregularities in the shape of the vessels and their primitive ornamentation indicate the early period of their creation and the simple craftsmanly workshop.
