“Diana" was created as a gilded weather vane for the tower of New York’s Madison Square Garden. Originally, it shone so brightly you could see it from the coast. After thirty years of weathering on top of the tower, the golden surface was dimmed. This year, our incredible conservation team, led by Andrew Lins, brought "Diana" back to splendor through a multistep conservation process. Watch how they did it in these videos.
