The statue was missing a cross from the orb which the Christ child holds, and her Sceptre was broken in half.
We made new crown points for both the madonna and the child, rather than add to the broken areas.
Once all the repairs were complete, we applied the gold detailing, and replenished the patina she looked good as new.
The weight is the same though - very heavy ...!
