In 1999 Antiquities conservators from the Getty Museum began a collaborative project with the Pergamon Museum in Berlin to conserve a statue of the Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius. The two-thousand year old statue was becoming structurally unstable. The statue was partially disassembled and flown to Los Angeles where it was taken apart completely, cleaned, stabilized, and reassembled in the Museum's labs.
Getty conservator Eduardo Sanchez tells the story of the statue's conservation.
