De-Wreckovating Statues

Over the past many years, we have covered a number of church de-wreckovations, but never, I think, one about the dewreckovation of statues. Thanks to a reader for bringing to my attention this video, recently posted on the YouTube channel of a company that specializes in this kind of work, Ottawa-based Brushworks Statuary Restoration and Repair. It shows very nicely how they repaired and and repainted two statues from the parish of St Clement in Ottawa, the home of the local FSSP apostolate. (I make bold to suggest that the Spanish, who in recent years have given the world a spate of hilariously bad “restorations”, would do well to invite these folks for an extended visit to their country once the madness of the pandemic subsides.)
