Abstract

This paper presents a study bas-relief from the New Kingdom (1550-1070 BC), which was found in Sinai in 2009 and came the Egyptian Museum, Cairo, in a quite challenging condition. The interest of this piece lies in the danger that the salt causes to the block’s surface, and particularly to the pigments of its decoration. The block is sculpted on two opposite sides, which both need to be consolidated, in order to be safely displayed in the museum’s galleries. The authors describe the investigation carried out to identify the types of salts and to select the possible techniques to remove them and preserve the surface and pigments.
