The ivory was gently cleaned with a mild solution in 1982. In 2011 the ivory returned to the laboratory to be prepared for loan. Minor amounts of dirt had accumulated since the last cleaning, so this dirt was carefully removed again with a mild cleaning solution. Since the ivory would be traveling to another institution, a decision was made to reinforce one of the cracks from the back with an easily reversible technique to decrease any risk of splitting during travel.
