So many heads, but where are their bodies? That’s a question we are hoping to figure out! These ceramic heads were recently rehoused to make it easier for our conservator to sort through them and determine if they belong to the fragmented ceramic torsos in our collection. If a match is found, our conservator will attach the head to the torso, making the object complete again!
