This week in objects conservation, we’re doing the finishing touches to the 100+ objects being installed in our newly renovated Ancient Middle East Gallery, opening Saturday, December 18.
Earlier this month our objects conservator and one of our mount makers traveled to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC to install our Nabataean Shrine for the first time in 15 years!
Objects conservation is finishing the treatment of the Nabataean limestone sculpture Eagle Wrestling with Serpent, which dates from 50-150 CE.
Our objects conservator has been working with Andy Wolf, an intern from NYU’s graduate training program.
Supported by the generosity of tens of thousands of contributors to the ArtsWave Community Campaign.
