Restoration

Due to major damage, which was the consequence of the weakening of connections between ceramic tiles and the wooden supporting structure, it was necessary to undertake the restoration of the Dalmatian Woman and Croatian Spring; it lasted from the late 2014 to May 2016. Thanks to the knowledge and skills of Dragana Dingarac Krivaja and Milan Andrić, experienced conservation and restoration specialists, Tabaković’s panels radiate again with their original beauty.
