The Egyptian- Japanese conservators are working jointly to conduct the final conservation process for the mural paintings.
The first stage of conserving mural paintings started with removing previous conservation mortar with Sonic cutter device provided by JICA.
then, conservators proceeded with the second stage, where they apply a new mortar that is made from a carefully selected conservation materials in order to prevent any adverse chemical reactions with the paintings.
Conservators skillfully added a final thin layer on the top of the mortar, which contains Egyptian mud grains and yellow pigmented soil to give the mortar a more natural look.
The great efforts will pay off when the mural paintings in their final look are finally displayed at GEM．
