Shroud of an egyptian called Bes

In February 2003, the Egyptian Museum of Barcelona acquired a piece with the most unique characteristics. On the one hand, it was an object of a type of which we have received very few to date; on the other, its fragile condition recommended rapid action to preserve it and to render it suitable for public exhibit. Fortunately, through efforts at restoration it has been possible to recover and give dignity to a work that could otherwise be considered to have for all intents and purposes been lost.
