Before Linnaean classification, early orders of things in the natural world were created based on various types of resemblances. Typologies of resemblances created relationships between one thing to another by significant placement, similarity, and difference. At the time these orders, random though they seem now, framed a perception of the world based on semblance. Sculptural Combines is a series of original, small-scale sculptures placed next to artifacts in the museum’s Egyptian collection. The sculptures are formal interpretations of each artifact’s conceptual content and according to seven types of resemblances: emulation, sympathy/antipathy, convenience, analogy, parity and copula.
