Work has begun on the back of The Mystic Marriage this week after it was was carefully moved by professional art handlers T&S yesterday.
The thick wooden panel has a woodworm problem which conservators Henry and Gail are now addressing by injecting synthetic resin and micro balloons into the holes they have left.
This will not only kill off the pests but also add structural strength to the panel.
Henry and Gail said “We are very pleased with the progress we have made so far and the overwhelming interest visitors have in the project. We are enjoying engaging with the public and explaining what we are doing”.
