This Chinese Tang Dynasty (618-906 A.D.) clay horse statue was restored by, the expert conservator, Mark Fry. The statue had significant damage and loss, particularly to the head and front legs. In addition, the original paint had completely worn away. Mark carefully repaired the missing and damaged areas using a variety of methods. Museum quality restorations like this one are his specialty. He has the the ability to beautifully and accurately recreate the original appearance of an artifact. This particular project was a challenge because of the extensive damage, but Mark was able to successfully restore the statue to its former glory. The horse is now on display again.
