Rendezvous in the exhibition "Highlights in dialog"

During the guided tour of the exhibition "Glanzstücke im Dialog", restorer

restorer Petra Kruse draws attention to art transportation and its

approach to particularly fragile objects. Works of art sometimes leave

sometimes leave the museum for a variety of reasons and go on

on journeys. To ensure that they arrive safely and intact at their destination,

many factors have to be meticulously checked in advance to avoid negative

negative effects on the object.

For example, a turban snail goblet was requested for an exhibition project in New York. In this work of art, which was created around 1600, a rare turban scroll forms the body, crowned by a finely chased engraved dragon's head as a lid and supported by a delicate base. Can a goblet like this travel?
