About this lecture
The conservation treatment of the apse mosaic of the Monastery of Saint Catherine in the Sinai involved digital documentation of every aspect of the mosaic. The documentation was planned to meet two requirements: provide life-size photographs in high definition at a scale of 1:1 and make then easily reproducible so as to facilitate accessibility.
In her presentation, Andreina Costanzi Cobau described the process used to gather information and transfer it to a database during the Saint Catherine project.
