I have heard the term “objet d’art” twice today.
Once in the movie Dead Again, which is a movie largely revolving around reincarnation.
Next, I heard it in the first episode of the Rainn Wilson dramedy, Backstrom, in a scene with a Hindu doctor in which the topic of reincarnation is also raised.
It’s been probably years since I heard the term at all, though I’m sure I’ve read it in that time.
That is all.
