I am remembering to my first conservation work . that was year 1993 , one day I were came at home from My fine Art Class. then I saw my mother was in tens for her god Sculpture Gangour or Ishar . That Sculpture is in wood and that’s size is in one fit height . Kind your information My mother is praying to that God Sculpture to her childhood age . so that sculpture is very important for my mother.
When I asked to my mother why you upset ? then she told me this god Sculptures color got fade so it look is not looking nice . Then I said don’t worry Mother , you come out to your tens . I will repaint to your God Sculpture , so give me this sculpture for repaint work . I will paint it like its natural look and I sure you will like that natural look of this sculptures after my repainting work .
My mother is very sensitive so she was not wanted to take any risk about her god Sculpture . that time I were noticed in her ,the real love about her god Sculpture , she is loving very much to her god Sculpture just like a baby loving to her baby doll . it is true or its natural . because that sculpture is with my mother to her childhood age so a very strong relation was maintained with that sculpture by my mother.
