Mit modernsten Geräten wird der Lienzo Seler erforscht.
„The study of Lienzo Seler II is constrained by several principal limitations: firstly, the analyses need to be carried out without taking samples and withaout visible damage to the object. Secondly, the object cannot moved outside its current showcase frame. Only the glass protection can be removed. Therefore, the Rathgen-Forschungslabor (RF) applied a strategy of investigation with mobile and micro-invasive methods. Thirdly, the size of the object and the limitations in the hieghtof the potable measurement equipmentlimites the investigation area th the lower part of Lienzo Seler II.
For the study of the constituting materials, an analytical strategy comprising complementary techniques was especially designed. the first step was digital microscopic investigations allowing the identification of analytical areas best suited for pigment and dye analyses as well as for the measurement of the preservation state. Then, a non-invasive micro-X-ray fluorescence analysis (micro XRF) was applied to infer the inorgnic pigments from the constituting chemical elements. “
