How could you pack a butterfly wing?

An article by Dr Nicole Reifarth published on the Gerda Henkel Foundation's science website.

For the storage of fragile archaeological textiles, Dr. Nicole Reifarth found an interesting construction specially designed by the company KLUG-CONSERVATION, in this case for fragments of a painted Egyptian mummy shroud, exhibited in the Egyptian Museum in Berlin.
In the meantime, the project has been completed. The research article has been published on the website pages of the Gerda Henkel Foundation. You can read the article here.
