In case your best friend is human, is he or she to be categorized a collector? Admittedly it's like entering another world to graciously accompany a friend collecting fossils, or possibly Louis Vuitton handbags?
In the 16th C. you wouldn't be considered cultured if collecting wasn't part of your world. Too many new discoveries, treasures, finds of any kind popped up daily. Collecting was de rigueur!
And Collectors need drawers. To store, categorize. To inspect, admire, to gloat... And collectors with taste would want a cabinet of elegant proportions, an infinite number of drawers, beckoning to be pulled out and celebrated. Above all a cabinet that is easily transportable, a real Collector collects on weekends, on vacations.... And a cabinet, when multiplied, can fill a wall as if it's one whole. Such are Collector’s demands!
