4444-english_heritage_logo1-2Widespread biological growth had been building up on the surface of these fine Italian sculptures. They were also in need of some sensitive repair to safeguard their condition over the coming winter.


Inspire Conservation gently cleaned the statues, assessed their condition and then made some necessary lime repairs. The appearance of the sculptures was transformed and can now be fully appreciated by weekend visitors to Brodsworth Hall. Inspires work also means that the statues are now in a much more stable condition to face the winter.
