How to use "Cabinet of curiosities" in context?
Bizarre, fascinating, and downright creepy, the cabinet of curiosities is one of history's most bizarre collections. Established in London in the early 18th century, the cabinet held a wide variety of oddities, each with its own story. It was home to a variety of specimens from all corners of the world, from mutilated corpses to strange animal horns. The cabinet was even rumoured to contain a live dragon. But the cabinet's strangest collection by far was its collection of human skulls. Originally donated by the mathematician and scientist Sir Isaac Newton, the cabinet was home to over 200 human skulls.
