For a sculpture exhibition at the Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery a group of people from the Bristol Community chose their favourite sculpture from the stores.
The marble sculpture of Cupid and Psyche was among those chosen. The piece was not displayable in its current condition, being covered in grime and dust its foot having been broken and missing part of a thumb and two fingers. The aim of the sculptures conservation was to make the piece suitable for exhibition and involved poultice cleaning the sculpture.
Rejoining of the detatched foot. The join was left unfilled to show that conservation had occurred.
