Art Conservation Forensic Analysis Assists In The Recreation of Historic Details In New LDS Provo City Center Temple

Share

In April of 2011, I was asked to do forensic analysis of wall decorations in the burned out Provo Tabernacle building by the LDS Church History Dept. to find out details and make proposals. While proposals to recoup or salvage original sections of decoration were not followed, our work was much appreciated and helped with the historic recreation of the details in the new LDS Provo City Center Temple building. A quick review of the exam I did in the burnt remains of the beloved historic building is on another blog: http://www.fineartconservationlab.com/travel/art-conservation-forensic-analysis-of-wall-decorations-in-burned-out-historic-building/

But you will LOVE THIS!!! A wonderful video on the historical elements and symbolism in the new building was just posted this afternoon: http://redeemer-of-israel.blogspot.com/2016/01/interior-architectural-details-of-PCCT.html

PLEASE, leave a great comment at the bottom of the blog page… and pass the link around to others. I love this video presentation!
