The Hornby Portal

Ed, Curator of Medieval and Renaissance Art

The Burrell is full of pieces of beautifully carved stonework from historic buildings, which have been carefully built into the fabric of the museum. These architectural fragments can be found all over the museum and have wonderful stories to tell. One of these is the Hornby Portal, a favourite of Ed, curator of Medieval and Renaissance Art, who shares some insights in this short film.
