Science and the Sacred: The Preservation of Sacred Art
Ann Shaftel works with, and teaches, the preservation of sacred art around the world - to museum directors, curators, conservators, to university faculty and students as well as to groups of private collectors, dharma students and artists. In this talk Ann addresses the challenges and issues in preserving sacred art. Whether sacred art is defined by its location and existence in a Himalayan monastery, or hooked rugs that are sacred to the history of a small American community historical society, the scientific principles for its preservation remain the same, and the best explanation is a practical explanation.
