Cleaning and Reintegration of the 13th Century Icon
The First Project for the MIRU: Cleaning and Reintegration of the 13th Century Icon with Saint John the Baptist, Monastery of the Syrians, Wadi Natrun in Egypt
Painted by a Byzantine-trained artist on a locally-crafted sycomore panel, later partly devoured by insects, the endangered icon (91×67×2 cm) was revitalised using the MIRU.
