were brought in studio with small mechanical damages
along the gilded area of `mantle`. Condition of gilding
was quite good. Other, pigmented areas of sculptures
were cracked (fig.1. & fig.2.).
Gesso was very firmly attached on wooden surface.
There were no traces of delaminating.
Demand was to restrict procedure only on gilded areas
of `mantle` in order to deter further process of deterioration
and possible delaminating of gesso of this very areas,
but this time, not to intervene on the other areas
of objects (fig.1. & fig.2).
of the object was made of Beechwood (Fagus sp.). The
`mantle` areas were covered with approximately 3 mm
thick layer of traditional gesso (calcium carbonate
powder and organic adhesive probable Fish-eye glue)
and with layer of light red bole. Other surfaces were
cowered with thinner layer of traditional gesso. The
`mantel` areas were water gilded and then burnished.
Other surfaces were painted.
