The History of Embalming with Dr Philip Gore

Master Embalmer Dr Philip Gore of Gore Brothers funeral directors has over 40 years of experience in the funeral industry and will be hosting an hour long talk and Q+A in relation to our Emperor Qin’s Mausoleum project series.

We will learn techniques, tools and knowledge drawn from Dr Gore’s field to develop sculptural methods and an understanding of materials that can survive time. We will also use embalming techniques metaphorically, to think about eternity and the afterlife.
