Conservation of a King

Season 3 Episode 7 | 5m 54s | Video has closed captioning.

A major work by the 19th century artist William Story has been acquired by the NC Museum of Art. The 4-ton statue depicts King Saul under the influence of the evil spirit. Carved in 1865, the statue spent more than a century in anonymity in a British boarding school before traveling to the US, where the museum's conservator prepared the King for a home at the NCMA.
