The Cabinet of Renwick Ambrose Matheton
MetadataShow full item record
This display represents all items archived (to date) in the collection of the late Renwick Ambrose Matheton. A known eccentric and occult enthusiast, Matheton spent his lifetime procuring and cataloging artifacts pertaining to a previously undiscovered civilization - one that seemingly pre-dates the continental schism of Pangaea. Through research, speculation, and the aid of Matheton's coded and cryptic notes, these objects have been identified and categorized to compile this exhibition. Finding the connections between these artifacts became the force driving his every waking moment, some say driving him to madness. Many of the ephemera included in this exhibition are works of his own, attempts to recreate the technologies of these ancients. But was it madness? With continued analysis of these objects a simple fact becomes increasingly apparent - something sinister lurks in the ancient origins of these artifacts. The further I delve into this research, the more I am beginning to see these connections. For what purpose were these objects destined before they entered Matheton's collection? What connection, if any, exists between these artifacts and Matheton's disappearance? Ominous warnings aside, please enjoy the assembled ephemera from the collection of Renwick Matheton. Drawing ones own connections is encouraged, but not recommended. Feel free to share your findings.
