RESTORATION PROJECT: Reconnect legs to body of figure
The collector of this aged alabaster sculpture (created by another artist) contacted Karen when the legs of this figure broke off in a move.
In the review process, Karen shared with the owner her concerns:
1. The weight of the body may prevent the ability to stabilize the legs.
2. There’s always a chance an unstable flaw in the stone may exist and as she drills into the legs to install reinforcing pins, the stone may crack and fail.
The legs were reconnected successfully and the client was pleased with the results.
