Mexican Ancestor

Here is an edit of an old painting that had been folded into half and then three times down the length. Folding old paintings is never a good idea, in case you were wondering. If you ever must transport a painting any way but flat, rolling it loosely is the only way to do it, but even that should be avoided since the canvas treatment tends to be brittle and can flake off as you see happened when this one was folded.
(The photographer had to pin it down to keep it from folding in on itself while he took the picture)

Anyway after some tender loving care she's ready to see the world again!
Oh, and she's not my Ancestor in case you were wondering.
