Found a few days ago, spend a day or so arranging the roots before taking a picture.
Strange but subconsciously I created a portrait of my Great Great Grandmother as I remembered her from photographs. Her real Name was Adele Buddecke, nick named Adelchen because she was small and tender.
I have to let her dry out before I make the final adjustments. The big supporting root at her back has to go before she
she will go into a resin mould. dust and dirt will be sealed with epoxy but I need a manufacturer in France who can seal her into a clear
perspex or resin box because I am afraid that my mixture will crack or be cloudy.
Any advise or contact is appreciated or shall I ask Damian Hirst :) ?
Andreas Heumann What amazing advise Volker, at first I thought you are kidding me. Perhaps the ETH in Zuerich could do that for me? As an "Egg Head" perhaps you know a place from your connections where I can have this done?- I have a baby shoe from Adelchen, I could have it hidden inside, just imagine!
Herman Cornelis Any hospital with a MRI facility could do this, if the object isn't to big to fit into the scanner.It's a question of time(patient waiting list?) and money (hospital/radiologist fee),and of course interest in the matter.

Andreas Heumann Thank you Volker, unfortunately some idiot "Garden Helper" decided this is rubbish and chucked the work onto a wood burning pile, I rescued most of it but it is a new start.
