Hello, friends. Last 3 months I was engaged in a very large project, this is the restoration of a very old iconostasis, which is already 150 years old. I want to share the results of the final work. During the works we had to remove all the old paint and then put it all together, after which everything was painted with PU enamel and all the columns and threads were gilded

I think that’s about the biggest project I’ve seen here on lumberjocks.

I can’t imagine. Random iconostasis history question. Were they originally one or two icons and then built up over time, or were the first ones already made of multiple icons to make a (relatively) solid surface?

I’d be way too paranoid to do this. Like if there was a 99.9% chance I wouldn’t mess it up, I’d still be awake all night worrying over the .1%.

That is one project I would not tackle at my age but I am glad that “youngsters” like you have the skill and physical ability to tackle a project of that scope as history needs to be preserved.
It looks awesome!

How were these skilled craftsmen chosen?
