This exhibition was the second in a series illuminating juxtapositions among treasures from the Israel Museum collections, from throughout material cultural history. Bizarre Perfection celebrated the craftsmanship, skill, and dexterity involved in creating works of art and unique objects through long, labor-intensive processes, the result of which are objects so exquisite as to inspire amazement and even disbelief.
