The Work of the Ceramics, Glass & Metals Section, British Museum Department of Conservation and Scientific Research

The work of Ceramics, Glass and Metals conservators at the British Museum 5. Conservator Denise Ling replaces the (not original) dowel that joints the moveable arms of an early 1st century terracotta Oriental Aphrodite from Turkey (1893,0915.7). The figurine has a magnificent hair style and remains of gilding and several colours of paint, but the focus is on her massive platform shoes. She is part of the travelling exhibition Shoes: Pleasure and Pain.
