There’s a world for this satisfying phenomenon particularly in the art world – art restoration.

Although we’ve seen some pretty terrible examples in the media the past years (remember the woman who ruined the portrait of Jesus?), when done right, it can be incredible to see.

Watching it all happen in real time is even more amazing than seeing a car or a wall become pristine again.

The difference, we think you’ll agree, is incredible.
