This is very good!

It's always interesting to see "behind the scenes" to understand how something was created, repaired and maintained as time passes. It's also interesting to see something that seems so masterfully, perfectly painted and realize the painter ran amok and either ignored the drawing they were to follow, or embellished it with yet more stylistic interpretation and perspective. A cool use of technology in investigative techniques.
