Conservation Science and Artifacts of the Past by Dr. V Jeyaraj

Location: APC Seminar Hall

Speaker: Dr. V. Jeyaraj,
Director, Hepzibah Institute of Heritage Conservation, Chennai

About the Talk: India is rich in artifacts from its past. Our ancestors were familiar with the art of conserving them. Today this art has developed into a sophisticated science which allows us to preserve these artifacts for posterity. Our understanding of this science has sadly led to recreation of masterpieces by counterfeit methods. But at the same time, science also allows us to authenticate the originals from counterfeits.
