“Chinese General Guard’s Treatment” is a slide show of MPF Conservation’s treatment of a pair of Chinese statues meant to be door guards. The treatment is a mixture of conservation techniques and restoration techniques.
Both statues were dirty and had never been professionally cleaned. We removed layers of embedded grease and grime from a century of use.
One of the 19th century statues had a broken hand; this hand was properly repaired with carved wood. Painted infill was done with Gamblin oil paints.
