reconstruction

If substantial areas of an object are missing or if the object is seriously shattered, special methods of restoration are asked for. The original design of lost areas or the overall shape of an object may have to be established, before actual restoration can begin. Research is an important aspect of reconstruction of such an object.

Mainly in case of museum objects reconstructed areas often have to be recognisable and distinguishable from the original substance. In those cases, reconstructed areas can be given a slightly different colour or surface texture compared with the original surface.
