Updated: 27 May 2016
What compels us to anthropomorphize, elevate or transfer mystical powers unto plain objects? Just as a child feels security in the presence of a cherished blanket, or a shaman summons the divine powers of the gods through an idol, humans have transferred human properties to the non-human. Join the Musée du Quai Branly as they look into this curious relationship, from its simplest manifestations to modern (and disturbingly real) humanoid robotics.
