Noble Friends,

Today the BBC is offering a brief video on the techniques used to clean
dust and salt from the walls of the Sistine Chapel and its priceless
frescoes. The film features short interviews with three of the workers, as
well as showing the equipment an techniques they use when tourists aren't
around. Looks like it is ongoing night-shift work:

It took Michaelangelo four years to paint the Sistine Chapel's ceiling. He
could have done it in a week with a roller. (Ewww! "Ducking" for cover.)

Yours Aye,

Mungo Napier, Laird of Mallard Lodge  🦆
