Wolfs Conservation and Restoration

Object:
An egg by the extinct elephant bird.

Approximate size:
Ca. 30cm. long

Condition:
Broken in to very many pieces. In the past there have been several attempts made to bond the pieces back together, none very succesful. At least three different types of old adhesive were found all over the pieces.

Suggested treatment:
The object was cleaned and the old glue removed before it was pieced together.
