There’s never a dull moment at the Johns Hopkins Archaeological Museum! This week, I had the opportunity to rehouse this unique limestone architectural fragment. This particular object was extremely heavy, so I had to create a sturdy box and custom mounts to support its weight. Just look at that face!
