Van Eyck original Lamb restored

After intensive research the restoration team of the Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (KIK-IRPA), Brussels) has removed the old overpaint that masked the main figure of the Ghent Altarpiece for nearly five centuries. As such, the well-known Lamb – an impassive and rather neutral figure, with a wide forehead and large ears – has given way to the Van Eycks’ original. More at Flemish Primitives.
