“Looking with touch” area.

“Looking with touch” invites one to discover the tactile sensations of leather as a material. Visitors are suggested a voyage through four techniques used in leather art: etching, fretwork, water-hardened leather and moulded cordwain.

These techniques are presented in this tactile module indicated with large characters and transparent Braille using four objects representing each of the techniques: an engraved box, a fretwork shadow theatre figure, a water-hardened leather vessel and a fragment of cordwain wall covering with its mould. The leather coveys its elasticity, hardness, malleability, lightness, texture and characteristic smell.
