Restoring the original solemnity of the Salle du Conseil de l'Ordre. When the fabrics were removed, we were shocked to find the pre-fire staffs still impregnated with the traces of smoke left by its history. Everything was there: the paint, the ghosts of the original ornaments, the scrolls of foliage, pearls and flowers.
Restoration and restitution of missing staff ornaments, based on photographs and old sketches, recreation of clay models of the missing ornaments before making the plaster molds used to print the proofs.
