Samurai conservation before and after: Short film shows the incrustations from being in the sea for close to half a century. This came from a shipwreck, whose Captain collected Asian Art. There were some interesting small 12 inches metal figures. This one had Bronze Disease and was crusted over hiding the beautiful textures on the flowing robe. Thanks to the Objects Director of the deYoung, Elisabeth Cornu, for her direction and knowledge. The Samurai emerged.
