On the fringe of the seminar, El-Lessi added, a special session will be organized to display some of the Egyptian museum artifacts recovered after going missing during the January revolution. “Restorers of these objects will represents along with a slide show the technique they used in restoring such priceless objects,” El-Lessi told Ahram Online.
