In August of 2016, south Louisiana suffered what was termed a 1,000-year flood. My wife and I were very lucky. We lost an automobile, but fortunately, our house was spared flooding by mere inches. The statue pictured was located under 6 feet of brown, muddy water. Pictured on the left is the statue as I found it minus the cape which was simply gross. The right arm was broken, scallops were broken on both gauntlets, the belt and chest emblem had fallen off, but I managed to locate the belt and salvage it. I replaced broken parts and the belt buckle using baked clay polymers, cut the suit to fix the arm, replaced the bat emblem using a faux leather fabric and added a new cape. If you’d like to see the entire restoration, including the house from where the statue was recovered, visit the link below…and say hello!
That is amazing! Nicely done
There’s actually something very poignant and symbolic in this. Nicely done.
Thanks friends, you’re all very kind.
