Pieta Greaves

The parka is made from horizontal strips of marine mammal intestine sewn together in a horizontal pattern using tiny sinew stitches. 

The conservation returned the parka to display in a physically stable condition removing surface dusts, old surface treatments and mending tears. A new light weight mount was produced which supported the delicate object while on display.
