Photograph of a gallery exhibition space showing large tapestry hung on a wooden wall. The tapestry is made up of a black and white, archive photograph, from the early 20th century showing a group of white men and women gathered in a group holding museum artefacts in their hands or on their laps. They are surrounded by other museum exhibits and display cases. The tapestry is framed with a bright yellow border. Surrounding the tapestry is a wider wooden structure containing seating and alcoves. Two gallery visitors are looking at the tapestry, one standing looking at the tapestry, the other seated holding a walking stick.
