Making a replica frame for 'The Scapegoat'
The original gilded frame belonging to the Lady Lever Art Gallery painting 'The Scapegoat' by William Holman Hunt was damaged and in need of extensive conservation treatment.
Before work started the frame conservation department manufactured a replica frame for the painting to hang in, so that it wouldn't have to come off display for too long.
