The Ghosts of Knole
by Margaret McAvoy
A hauntingly ethereal image of a piece from the collection of furnishings at Knole, Sevenoaks, Kent, that was obtained using 3DX-ray technology. Several pieces were documented in this manner, that it might reveal otherwise unknown damage or previous repairs, and to more accurately assess conservation efforts. I concur with many of the comments from the original post of this image at National Trust Treasure Hunt: the images are most suited for exhibition or prints or…do we see a possible tome in the future? (And not just a few upholstery tacks, as well!)
Image of piece at Knole by x-ray, facilitated by James Young, of 3DX-Ray Limited, kindly via National Trust Treasure Hunt. Do visit the site for additional images from this process, they are truly fascinating!
