The work carried out in the Museo del Prado's Restoration Workshops brought out Fra Angelico's technical perfection, as well as the rich expressive values he conferred on the Archangel's wings, which gained even more prominence after the intervention. Once restored, the panel was scanned three-dimensionally in ultra-high definition, which served as the basis for the design of this bracelet, which faithfully depicts the original outline of the feathers.
