A polychrome and polymateric ethnographic shield from Borneo, owned by the National Prehistoric Ethnographic Museum "Luigi Pigorini" in Rome, has been carried out to restoration regarded mainly the painted surface cleaning and the feathers recovery, following criteria such as adopting not invasive methods to preserve the original materials and using eco-sustainable products.
