After 200 years and untold thousands of feet, the original terra cotta floor in this historic Cape Town, South Africa, church had been worn completely through in places. The floor was uneven, unsightly, and extremely dangerous.  Archeo~Arts was asked to undertake the massive restoration project. Worn areas were filled, smoothed, and distressed to maintain the look the correct age, then hand-finished to match the undamaged areas.


Something irreplaceable and precious is damaged.

This superb Tyrannosaurid fossil was jostled, sending the right half of the lower jaw crashing to the floor to smash into more than 26 pieces. Because of the rarity and value of the fossil, and the severity of the damage, only someone with excellent knowledge of dinosaur anatomy and experience with fossil restoration could be trusted. Restoration took more than a week of painstaking matching, gluing, and painting to achieve nearly flawless results.
