The Prophetess

Picked up the piece that I am going to be restoring, there is a fair amount of damage, some mold caused by damp from an undetermined source. The frame was damaged too so I had to make up a new one, the text on the frame was fading, the piece was called The Prophetess. Artists name is to faded to make out, and there seems to be no allusion to which Prophetess it actually is.

A quick study indicated that this piece was of a certain art movement, alas records doesn’t confirm what the movement was which is a pain.

I repaired and re-stretched the canvas over the new frame, cleaned up the paint work and the mold. We haven’t discovered any information on the construct of D’ni paint and how it was mixed so I ended up using surface equivalents and matching the colours up, matched them up nicely I think in the end.

The Prophetess

I have a hi res scan of the piece here: The Prophetess.
For those of you who are interested, you can see the worst of the mold in the top left, haven’t managed to remove it all safely yet.

One thing about being in the Cavern so long restoring stuff, we have the processes down pretty well which means we can get things sorted out quickly, at least with smaller items anyway, bigger restoration projects always take longer not surprisingly.

Still got some work to do before I send it off to the SR guys.
