Croatian Conservation Institute mounted an exhibition in the Osijek Citadel to present the renovated Holy Trinity votive monument, following years of conservation and restoration work..
Croatian Conservation Institute carried out conservation and restoration work in order to adequately present this exquisite monument and prevent further dilapidation. The work comprised mechanical cleaning using water, micro sandblaster and laser. Stone was treated chemically with some parts reinforced using vacuum. The silver and gold plated elements on the top of the monument were also restored. The four bottom stone statues along with the original dove - the depiction of the Holy Spirit - were replaced by replicas and placed in a museum.
