Abstract
The Centro Nacional de Conservación y Restauración created a multidisciplinary team devoted to undertake the different work stages involved in the conservation and restoration of the original image of the Virgen del Carmen, after it suffered an arson attack in 2008. An intervention proposal was developed considering technical, theoretical and methodological contemporary criterions. It involved the recovery of the aesthetic and material reading of this actively worshipped image, in consideration of its enormous significance for the National Brotherhood of Carmen and the rest of the country. The following article describes the intervention processes carried out by the Cncr Monuments Laboratory on this sacred polychrome wood sculpture that showed significant fire damage.;(A.A.)
