Sacred objects used in ritual practice in a religious tradition: we must interpret these objects in ways that are respectful and sensitive to the tradition while allowing secular audiences to experience the objects through other lenses. How do we acknowledge the role of sacred art or artifacts in a religious tradition while allowing secular visitors to interpret them from different points of view? How do we work with school groups around these objects? What emotions, controversies, or misunderstandings might arise; conversely, what learning opportunities do sacred objects provide?
