A project of the Getty Conservation Institute

Workers implementing the surface protection intervention, a method of temporary protection for mosaics. The mosaic surface was covered with successive layers of plastic netting, geotextile, sandbags, and, lastly, a 10 cm layer of sieved soil. Half of this mosaic will be regularly uncovered as part of the monitoring and maintenance plan. Photo: Francesca Piqué.
