Talking Repair broken plaster sculpture

Hello
Perhaps someone out there has had the same problem I describe below and can offer advice. After several months of hard work sculpting a slightly over life sized male torso--then hollowing it out to about 2" thick, it was accidently knocked off the modeling stand and crashed to the floor. There are a goodly number of large pieces (and hundreds of useless fragments) and I believe they could be put back together---but how best to do it? Would joining them with plaster alone be sufficient? Metal pins and plaster? A metal or wood armature required? Would epoxy be the best material? Once restoration is complete I want to make a flexible rubber mold and about 7 casts. Thanks for any and all suggestions.
