Dear MARMAM colleagues,

As part of our exhibition development programme, the Natural History Museum, London, is seeking recommendations of companies that specialise in the take-down (deconstruction) of old armatures used to support very large, skeletal specimens, and the production of new, custom-built armatures using the latest materials and techniques for mounting bones.  We would also appreciate details of companies with a demonstrable capability to design rigging for the suspension of very large skeletal specimens.  This is a request for information and recommendations from colleagues worldwide.

Any assistance will be gratefully received.

Many thanks,

Richard C. Sabin
