      The life of a conservator is full of surprises.
      I have been asked to conserve a 6 in. diameter piece of human skin which is about to be surgically removed from the artist’s body. The artist’s intent is to wait until the skin has dried and shrunk so that he can mount it on a medallion.
      As a conservator I will have to work alongside the skin surgeon and take over from him after the surgery has been completed. I would need to monitor the piece of skin during curing and prevent damage which would cause the loss of the skin.
      This is a hit or miss kind of situation, hence thorough research is extremely important to the success of this “once in the artist’s lifetime” project.
      I would appreciate comments and suggestions on how to assist the artist with this request.
