The restoration of statues is about more than improvement of an object. Statuary restoration involves taking three-dimensional art to the next level of artistic impact. Made of various media, sometimes exposed to elements, statuary sustains different kinds of damages. But whether they are profound or mild in nature, the damages can be stopped and the artwork restored to convey the artist’s original idea. This presentation will include a few examples of various approaches to professional sculpture restoration.
