Athena- Gods & Heroes Archaeology Digging Kit


I'm interested in buying this or a similar item

Educational excavation and conservation puzzle kit.

Dig, find, mount and display the sherds of a black figured plaque inspired from representations of mythological scenes in Ancient Greek Vases.

Can you guess the figure depicted? 
Athena emerging from Zeus’ head; Detail from an Attic black figure amphora, 550-525 BCE, (Collection of the Louvre Museum, Paris).

The kit contains fragments of a black figured pinax, other sherds and sea shells buried in a mixture of gypsum, clay and sand. It also contains a safe wooden digging tool, a small toothbrush, and a protective dust mask for excavation; a magnetic plastic sheet with self adhesive tape to mount the puzzle, a cardboard mount as well as instructions and information material on the object discovered.
