A digital installation of commissioned poems on ancient souvenirs of travel

Each year StAnza commissions poets to respond to artefacts from the collections at MUSA, the Museum of the University of St Andrews. With reference to this year’s On the Road theme, the artefacts chosen for our 2017 festival were brought back by travellers to other lands. A digital installation of images of the artefacts and the resulting poems will be exhibited during the festival.

The following images from the University's collections feature:

Jerusalem Box, HC1996.1

Nansen’s Norwegian flag, HC800

Sketch by Nansen, HC1112

Self portrait by Nansen, HC213

Tibetan prayer stone, ET1977.105
