Cleaning a small fragment of the ivory “bowl”

A few small fragments of the ivory “bowl” (we are not completely sure what this object is until it is “excavated” in the conservation lab) was found in the sifting of the sediments from around the bowl. Here you can see me gently brushing a fragment of the rim – to get a better view of the decoration. Needless to say, these fragments were added to the package with the bowl encased in a block and they will be joined to it in the future.
