Description
Close-up view of conservation work being done on one of the Assyrian Reliefs mounted on the east wall of the Assyrian Gallery on the upper level of the Walker Art Building. Gerri Strickler, one of two conservators from the Williamstown Art Conservation Center, repairs a crack in the surface of "Two Griffin-Demons Fertilizing the Sacred Tree with Palm Spathe" (1860.1). For many years the Assyrian Reliefs were in the Rotunda. During the 2005 - 2007 renovation they were removed, conserved, and reinstalled in the new Assyrian Gallery overlooking Upper Park Row and Maine Street.
