St-Philip-Neri-Church.-Liverpool-Mosaic

As a result of failed rainwater guttering and dampness to the mosaic backing, large areas of tesserae had become lost or at great risk of detachment. A condition survey was carried out and it was decided to carefully remove the St Philip Medallion and stabilise using a ‘face-scrim’ the remaining vulnerable sections. The removed mosaic is currently stored at the Church and on completion of the necessary building works, we are to reinstate at a later date.
