This beautiful 1908 sculpture by Bela Pratt had lost

parts of two fingers.

To create new fingers, I used a mixture of epoxy resin, marble

dust, and glass beads to imitate the appearance of marble.

I attached the fingers with a reversible adhesive, so the original

fingers can be reattached if they are ever located.

The replacement fingers are made from the highest grade inert

materials, so they will not change color over time.
