    'The noblest function of an object is to be contemplated' wrote the Spanish philosopher Miguel de Unamuno. From Vermeer's Young Lady with a Pearl Necklace on 1 January, to a 17th century Iranian astrolabe on 31 December, this yearbook provides something to contemplate for each day of the year - a sculpture, painting or ancient artefact from the collections of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin - and, on the facing page, an apposite quotation and space for your own words.
