What's Gone Is Forever Gone: The Role of Conservation Treatment in Looted Antiquities

This poster explores how conservators treat looted objects by making a comparison with the ideal conservation process. Although looted objects may seem to be intact in shape and form, there is something important missing: the context, the history, and the associated values. I chose the case of Kanakaria mosaics to demonstrate a restoration treatment focused solely on economic value.
I also want to thank Renata F Peters, Kathryn Walker Tubb and Laura Chaillie for their support and advise.
