(...) The forthcoming workshop is a continuation of previous trainings that have addressed the theoretical and practical geological aspects of stabilizing the tomb of a 6th to 7th century AD nobleman and conserving and restoring its mural paintings. With the guidance of an international expert in painting conservation/restoration, this years’ workshop aims to demonstrate the progression of conservation work on a sample area of paint layer in the tomb, from the initial phase of testing and analysis into restoration and conservation, up until the final phase, the aesthetic presentation of the painting, with the hope that Mongolia’s national conservators will be able to repeat the process on similar future situations in the country. The second aim of this workshop will be to address various issues found in the micro-climate of the tomb that are causing the proliferation of microorganisms and the degradation of the mural paintings. An environmental expert will be on site during the workshop to inform the group of conservators on ways to assess the environmental/climate parameters causing deterioration processes in the tomb and suggest adequate responses.
