    A 100% cotton tote bag, based on the photography of Luc-Henri Fage.

    Cave art

    Hand prints and stencils made with natural powdered colours in caves and on rock faces are known around the world. Some date back as long as 40,000 years ago. Made by people of all ages, they record communities reaching out to establish bonds with each other and spiritual worlds beyond nature.

    These hand stencils from Gua Tewet in a remote part of Borneo, Southeast Asia, are at least 10,000 years old. Unusually filled in with dot and line motifs, these hands are linked by a thread perhaps representing connections between living and spiritual forces.

    More about the exhibition

    The new major exhibition Living with gods: peoples, places and worlds beyond explores how people believe through everyday objects of faith from societies around the world and through time.

    The exhibition provides a perspective on what makes believing a vital part of human behaviour and seeing how people believe, rather than considering what they believe, suggests that humans might be naturally inclined to believe in transcendent worlds and beings.
