Abstract   "The Bacchus Conservation Project tells the intriguing story of how a derestoration treatment of a composite sculpture turned into a rerestoration project, once North Carolina Museum of Art experts discovered that all the sculpture’s fragmented marble sections came from ancient quarries. Together these ancient fragments create a wonderful statue of the god of wine, probably put together in the late 16th century (or early 17th century). The NCMA’s discoveries have unveiled a composite sculpture more interesting as a whole than as separated fragments, even though there is still a rare 2nd-century Roman torso embedded in the Bacchus statue"-- Provided by publisher
