Restored Mural

The mural below fell thirty feet and landed on end, folding like an accordion when a workman’s foot went through the ceiling. At every fold, the paint came off the canvas. Further damage came from when it was originally installed; along with hide glue, the installers used a few thousand tacks, leaving a few thousand holes. Needless to say, it was a chore to cover all the holes when the canvas was already too heavy to re-line.
