This process can preserve fine details, like the bark or growth rings on the inside. The red & yellow colours come from traces of iron trapped in the rock. Get close to a tree that lived with some of the earliest dinosaurs in the Dawn of Life Gallery!…
It's #LoveATreeDay, and we are not ✨petrified✨ to admit that we are in awe of this 212 million-year-old conifer tree trunk. Over millions of years, minerals slowly seeped into these dead trees, replacing the wood & turning the plant into stone.
For those who believe rocks tell stories, ⁦@ROMtoronto⁩ Dawn of Life is a riveting tale in evolution. Perfect #Friyay #spring #toronto

The robe’s interior features more traditional imagery, including paisley and stylized representations of the tools used by textile artisans.
The robe’s motifs are achieved through a centuries old dying and weaving method known as ikat. The final design is dyed directly into individual pieces of yarn, which must then be carefully arranged on the loom before weaving to achieve the desired effect.
This quilted cotton chapan (a type of coat or robe from Central Asia), is titled “Darth Vader II”. It is the work of Dilyara Kaipova. She blends traditional textile arts with modern motifs - in this case the helmet worn by Darth Vader. #MayThe4thBeWithYou
