Treatment

The medical faculty at the University of Sydney is housed in the Anderson Stuart Building. Along its corridor stand busts of great medical figures. They include Hippocrates, Sydenham, John Hunter and John Goodsir.

Birds had been roosting on the busts and they had accumulated large amounts of dust and grime. ICS removed the busts, cleaned, re-touched and re-fixed them on their plinths.
