The "treasure chamber" at Vienna's Kunsthistorisches Museum has taken on a new meaning, thanks to an exhibition curated by American filmmaker Wes Anderson and illustrator and author Juman Malouf. The pair were given free rein to assemble pieces from the museum's vast collections and archives, as well as some of its partner institutions, in order to put together the six-month show "Spitzmaus Mummy in a Coffin and Other Treasures". The opening of the exhibition Monday evening was attended by some of Anderson's perennial collaborators, including actors Jason Schwartzman and Tilda Swinton.Instead, the show's eight rooms are arranged in a more intuitive way, and objects that may hitherto have been overlooked such as the tiny coffin of the show's title, made in ancient Egypt for a shrew take center stage.
