Languages of publication
A sculpture representing the so called “Polovtsian baba” (no MAK/7911;) was made available for a dissertation in the Stone Sculpture, Stucco and Ceramics Conservation Workshop in the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow (conservation no – 537), in order to carry out research and subject it to conservation treatment, which would allow the statue to be exhibited in the open air. The technical and plastic conservation was conducted in the years 2005-2007. Photographic and descriptive documentation was collected, and laboratory examination was conducted (including the following analyses: petrographic, chemical - of salinity and types of pigments and mortars, microbiological), technical treatment was applied to the statue and, to a limited extent aesthetic – plastic conservation was carried out. A metal construction was designed and made to stabilise the sculpture and to enable it to be permanently exhibited in the vertical position.
