D is for DESK. This bolted-to-the-floor style, with inkwell hole, is pretty rare now, though when I started school is was almost universal.
What species of bird had the best quills for your writing back then?

The grammar school I attended was originally THE SCHOOL for the town. The furnishing dated probably from the early 1900's, although eventually they were replaced. The Junior High School (what would now be called a "middle school") was built somewhat later, perhaps the late 1930's and all the rooms had those bolted-to-the-floor desks, the seat ahead integral with the desk behind, and many with inkwells still in place. No longer live in that town, but I know that the grammar school, and I believe the junior high building as well, have been demolished.

J is for JANUS HELMET MASK. The Senufu people of Ivory Coast would not have called their mask "Janus." The mysterious Roman god Janus, among other properties, had symmetrical faces that looked both forward and backward simultaneously. The name has been applied to two-faced helmet masks of the type shown. The fierce heads were supposed to scare away malicious spirits during certain ceremonies.

M is for MEDUSA. This is the centerpiece of shield, made strictly for decoration, not battle.
