A carved wooden statue which had been treated to look like plaster is restored...
Above left is the Sacred Heart statue as it arrived at my studio. Above right, is our completed restoration of the same.
Fr. H and I sat down to coffee and discussed if there were any particular changes which might improve the look of the statue. We both agreed that its expression was a bit severe. That pointed beard was reminiscent of some of the more intense faces I had seen depicted on Mandyllions of the Eastern Church.
