This opens a general question of how far one might go to place a valuable
object on exhibit (I presume there are very few mummified moa heads
available to science) when that object might be "more" valuable in its wet
stage.  Once dried again, could it ever be rehydrated?  Why not make a
model of the head as it was found?

Just an idea.
