Ethnography restoration workshop
All newly acquired ethnographic items and others that have been out on temporary loan in exhibitions that include organic elements undergo insect eradication treatment using nitrogen anoxia. This prevents contamination of other pieces at the centre.
Prior to storage, surface cleaning is carried out to remove deposits of dust, soil, organic remains, spores, etc.
Complete restoration is only carried out where the state of conservation requires and when the item in question is to be used in exhibitions or studies.
