Wolfs Conservation and Restoration

Object:
Frontal half figure of a woman from Ancient Greece.

Condition:
The protome was badly broken into many pieces.

Suggested treatment:
First the planes of the crack were consolidated. Then all the pieces could be bonded back in the original position. Then fills were made in different colours so that no retouching was needed.
