y'all, please send virtual hugs to the Brazilian people tonight, who lost their entire national museum in a catastrophic fire. thousands of artifacts that date back thousands of years were lost, as well invaluable artworks from many cultures. this is a terrible loss for humanity.

as an anthropologist, artist and a lover of brazilian culture, and as someone who studied tupi, this loss is staggering and tremendous.

I had no idea that there was such a large and varied and invaluable collection in Rio (please excuse my ignorance). It's really heartbreaking and indeed a terrible loss for the Brazilian people and the whole of humankind.
