I'll be conserving this sleigh at Versailles

For the reopening of the Coach Gallery of the Palace of Versailles, I will be conserving this sleigh, called the "Siren."  She who called Odysseus to potential disaster is seen at the prow, and Neptune's head is at the front of the runners.

The Coach Gallery of the Palace of Versailles

...is to be reopened next year after the gallery is enlarged, across from the palace in the Grandes Ecuries.


Back at Versailles !!

It's been 9 years since I worked for the Palace of Versailles, conserving their horse-drawn carriages and sleighs.  Back again to work !
