Feb 17th, 2017: Nasothek

Tons of antique statues were dug up and moved to museums around the world. In the process
many of them lost most commonly their noses, but occasionally their ears or peepees.
In the 18th century most museums reconstructed the missing parts with restoration pieces.



But that fell out of vogue in the 20th century. Then a few museums collected the broken bits
for separate displays. This practice, being primarily noses, is called Nasothek.

This display is from the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek museum in Copenhagen.

And keep your eye open for a good ear.

The Elgin/Parthenon Marbles in the British Museum are missing their male parts, removed by order of Queen Victoria. We were told, when we asked about it, that they are all in a drawer, but cannot be reattached due to uncertainty about which goes where. Got a laugh from us.

It's a booger of a problem they've got.




Speaking of nasal humor...
