How to Take Care of Marble Sculpture?

To preserve the exquisite beauty of a marble sculpture, meticulous care and attention are essential. Firstly, maintain a stable environment free from extremes of temperature and humidity, as fluctuations can cause irreparable damage. 

Regularly inspect the sculpture for signs of wear or damage, addressing any issues promptly to prevent further deterioration. By embracing these practices with reverence and diligence, one can ensure that the marble sculpture retains its timeless allure for generations to come.

What Is Marble Sculpture?

Marble has been the chosen medium for stone monumental sculpture from ancient times, having various benefits over its more frequent geological "parent" limestone, most notably the capacity to absorb light a short distance into the surface before refracting it in subsurface dispersion.

As time goes by, marble sculpture is not only stuck with ancient Roman style designs. Marble sculpture is a statement that depicts living creatures or inanimate objects. 

How to Take Care of Marble Sculpture?

If this is your first time owning a marble sculpture, you must read this guide to carry out routine maintenance

1. Remove Dust and Dirt 

Basically, a sculpture is a display that is stored for a long period of time and placed in a place that is difficult to reach. Usually sculptures that are too large are also difficult to clean, so they require many people to clean them. 

The first thing you can do to care for a marble sculpture is to clean the dust and dirt that sticks to it. The goal is that there are no stains left when cleaned using soap. You can do this regularly once a week.

2. Dry Clean the Marble Sculpture 

After cleaning it from dust and dirt, you can dry clean the marble sculpture using a sponge and dry cloth. At this stage you don't need any fluids. Just clean it dry to make sure there are no stains attached. 

3. Clean with Water Mixture  

The next step is to use water to clean the marble sculpture. Try to use distilled water with room temperature. Then add a mild detergent, and mix it into the water. 

You can start wiping each side of the marble sculpture using a soft cloth with detergent. After everything has been soaped, clean off the remaining soap using plain water. 

You can also rinse the marble sculpture by placing the marble sculpture in a water bath to avoid many scratches. After that, dry it thoroughly using a soft cloth. Carry out marble sculpture maintenance once every two weeks.
