New Acquisition: The Terme Boxer December, the Museum welcomed a new cast: The Terme Boxer. Beginning life as a bright-white plaster cast, the Terme Boxer has been recently restored by former Fitzwilliam Museum technician Bob Bourne; his transformation from chalky whiteness to burnished bronze gives visitors the chance to see a magnificent replica of Hellenistic Greek sculpture up close and personal.
