Materials Science Research for the Conservation of Sculpture and Monuments

Abstract

Mountains give the illusion of durability because their grand scale hides the continual weathering of their surfaces. When the same stone is used to create a sculpture, the loss of a few millimeters suffices to spoil, or even eliminate, the features of a face; the rate of loss may be surprising, but it is not necessarily unnatural.
