African Gallery

The Bacchus Conservation Project is a multi-disciplinary and multi-phase endeavor. Take a look at the slideshow below to see the exhibition history of the sculpture and the view images of the various preliminary phases undertaken during the systematic study of the classical marble sculptures. More photos will be added when the conservation project starts. Be sure to visit often to see Bacchus transform before your eyes!
