CONSERVATION OF WOOD-CARVED ART PIECES
The conservation and restoration treatments of wood-carved art pieces are determined by numerous factors, including their preserved condition, historicity, size, functionality, or the exhibition of such artefacts in museums.
These considerations determine the range of interventions and the demands of each project, which may include minor procedures of preventive conservation, for example, those comprising of insecticide treatments.
In other cases more extensive interventions might be required, such as the disassembling of constructions and the reconstitution of missing sections, in order to reinsure the object’s structural and functional integrity.
The variety of the numerous projects of this kind undertaken by ARTIS to date, the special techniques applied, along with the experience drawn from them, guarantee the successful outcome of each future project.
