Replication of an 18th century marble bust of Gibbs
Conservation Technologies were commissioned by a private collector, with the permission of the Victoria and Albert Museum, to create a small number of replicas in plaster of an 18th century marble bust of the architect Gibbs by Rysbrack. The original can be seen in the British Galleries at the V&A.
The replication process involved no contact with the original bust.
