THE PIETA & RAREDOS RESTORATION
 

The extensive renovation of St. Agnes Cathedral included the restoration of a precious image of the Pieta, the original wood sculpture had several deep cracks that had to be repaired, the existing finishes were cleaned, removed and reapplied.  Jesus loin cloth was enhanced with gold leaf and the body of Christ was enhanced using a lighter finish than the finishes of the Blessed Mother.  The existing white statues of the Apostles in the raredos were restored and refinished to match the new wood finishes in the raredos.
