From Stacey’s Kitchen

Stacey has been crazy busy preparing objects and textiles for the new building, and she didn’t have time to write a blog post about how she made the “mummy” that supports our Golden Boy…So we stole her recipe:

And here are some of Stacey’s awesome¬†mummy-making photos¬†with captions on Flickr:

    While Stacey was busy in the kitchen, Golden Boy was hovering the background, supposedly ‘supervising’… but really, he was just singing to himself: “Bring back, bring back, Oh! Bring back my mummy to me, to me….”

    Congratulations to the staff of the NCMA`s who are working on the “Golden Boy”!
    I was searching about plexiglass mounts which I`m now particularly analyzing so I found your website and the the presentation of the complex case of the Mummy skeleton.
    I read previously a note on this blog by your colleague which “loudly” criticized the plexiglass mount. How exactly the plexiglass mount ruined the parts of the G.B.?
    Also, I could not find any information how the G.B. arrived at your Museum (it`s origin, dating…).

    It IS nice to see Golden Boy’s pieces “where they belong,” but I have often wondered why the mount is not colored? Why stark white? No criticism, just wondering. Was there some consideration of addiing a backgroung solor, or might that damage the work? It certainly goes with the surrounding walls!
