When the sculpture travels out of the museum, ('The Three Graces' is owned jointly with the National Galleries of Scotland), it must be packed once again into the second crate.
The inner crate is lowered onto the base of the outer crate, and the outer sides and top are bolted on. This exterior crate, lined with foam buffers, provides a further layer of protection and shock absorption.
