The same day Andrew and I visited the Eiffel Tower, we also toured the anthropology museum; Musée de l'Homme. After walking through the entire museum — and just before closing time — we discovered a wonderful exhibit on mosses, Les Mousses, Sentinelles de la Pollution.
This mixed media piece, Foetus, was one of several by artist Emeric Chantier.
Also by Mr. Chantier; Boy
And another (because I really liked this one).
Moss for personal hygiene? Wow.
Manufactured in Portland, Oregon! There's a little story with some history of this product on The Museum of Menstruation and Women's Health page, if you're interested.
Which I'd seen just the day before.
There were so many more to see, but I was overwhelmed and tired. I ended up just barely scratching the surface of this moss thing...
