This paper explores how the technique of paper moulding allowed antiquarians and explorers to transport details of monuments, temples and facades from across the world to the museum in the nineteenth century. The technique was particular suitable when access to the site was difficult. The paper examines the role of Lottin de Laval in the refinement of the technique, and its adoption by Alfred Maudslay in copying the Mayan temples of Central America in the 1890s.
