Laser cleaning of a Mithras shrine wall painting fragment

We had a highly contaminated fragment of a wall painting found in the Mithras shrine at the Aquincum legionary fortress in 1979 cleaned using a laser. The laser cleaning procedure was carried out by stone sculptor-conservator Dr Ivett Kisapáti (Carter & Carter Ltd., www.carterart.hu).
