“ Doctor of the Art” she considers herself. Why? She uses many tools like doctors, and “heals” the ancient art from our ancestors. Not interested? Well there’s more.

“ Doctor of the Art” she considers herself. Why? She uses many tools like doctors, and “heals” the ancient art from our ancestors. Not interested? Well there’s more. She works in textiles and 3 dimensional objects. She’s been into this for about 30 years! Dedicated so much to such interesting art pieces, and doing so much to reinstate their past beauty. That’s not even the half of it!

Like I said earlier about how she’s been doing this for 30 years, if you can’t believe it well, it’s flat out true! She started when she about in her 20’s and kept going with archeology. After about 20 years she got her job at the Denver Art Museum. Then, if you do the math like a technical person like me would do, you’ll find that she has been working for about 10 years at her current and stable job. So I guess all signs point that she has to be one heck of a hard worker!

Finally, what she’s actually doing in those laboratories and such. Well, earlier I mentioned 3 dimensional objects, and textiles. 3 dimensional objects are things like statues and sculptures. Textiles, well it’s basically the coats from civil war times and the textures on sculptures or statues. The fabrications on some of the artifacts. She takes these artifacts and statues and cleans them, paints them. Brings them back to life you could say. Did I paint the picture clearly enough?

Gina Laurin seems like someone who young archaeologists could aspire to be in many eyes, for so many reasons. She restores artifacts to prepare them for show to implicate someone's old belongings. Bringing them back in full to show today's society what used to be. Idol might be a word some would use, others would say she’s a representative for past culture. After all, if we didn’t have someone like her, wouldn’t that leave a loophole in America’s democratic society? Maybe, maybe not. Either way, she’s important in the archaeological field.
