Cinema phenom Wes Anderson just unveiled his first exhibition at the Kunsthistoriches Museum in Vienna, Austria which he curated alongside his wife, designer, and novelist Juman Malouf. Whimsically entitled “The Spitzmaus Mummy in a Coffin and Other Treasures from the Kunsthistorisches Museum,” the major presentation features a total of 430 pieces, spanning 430 years, that were pulled from the institution’s humongous collection of over 4.5 million artworks.

Highlights include a piece of fossilized wood which is the oldest object in the show, relics owned by a Korean prince, Roman-era statues, miniature busts, a glass that belonged to Napoleon as well as a  4th century B.C. tomb that adjunct curator Jasper Sharp describes as a “chubby ballerina who can’t dance very well having her one night as the white swan,” as per Artnet. Collectively, this marks the museum’s largest presentation yet.

See the show yourself at the Kunsthistorisches Museum which is on view until April 28, 2019. If you can’t make it, view the slideshow above to get a closer look at the objects exhibited.
