Inspire Conservation have completed a project for another local authority, this time in Yorkshire. We were instructed to clean and consolidate the marble statues that were donated to the town and have been recently situated in the town centre. The statue has been a topic of debate with the locals as some love it and others have their reservations, but I’m sure you agree that there is a massive improvement following the repairs and conservation undertaken by our accredited conservator Michael Sheppard.
The aim of the project was to sensitively clean the statue and consolidate the friable edges and open stone with lime based consolidation to limit further water absorption and help protect the surface from further saturation and decay. The local councillors were happy with the work and are grateful that the new installation will receive some more recognition and be appreciated by more of the local people.
