Quirky favourites of mine at the British Museum

They are not among the most famous exhibits at the British museum but after one too many Egyptian mummies, Assyrian antiquities and Greek statues, it was refreshing to see some quirky little displays, such as the old man in limestone holding a serpent staff (Mesoamerican culture), 19th century Alaskan craft using mammoth/walrus ivory and more.
