ARTifacts: 19th Century Hair Art
Clip: Season 2 Episode 38 | 2m 49s
Back in the days before photographs and friendship bracelets, people would keep locks of hair as tokens of their loved ones. Despite its seeming fragility, hair can withstand the test of time and doesn’t decompose very quickly. As a result, the Ohio History Center has a large collection of these items. Curator Rebecca Odom shows us a few of these everlasting keepsakes.
