Augmented Reality from The Met Museum

The Metropolitan Museum has recently offered new digital tools to share their collection during the pandemic. 
Deity Figure (zemí), ca. A.D. 1000. Dominican Republic. Taíno.
Wood (Guaiacum), shell, 27 x 8 5/8 x 9 1/8 in. (68.5 x 21.9 x 23.2 cm).

One is an Instagram app that lets users see how Met objects would look in their own home by superimposing an image of the object against the background of your life.
Met Museum blog says: "What would a van Gogh look like on your bedroom wall? How about showing off an iconic Taíno sculpture in your living room? Or maybe try out a Boccioni sculpture in your backyard? Using these effects, you can do that and more—no matter where you are in the world.
