Patterns: Layers, Part 2

Crews are continuing their work to repair and restore 
the columns on the old Indiana National Bank. 
Over the years, some of the marble slabs 
encasing the columns have loosened and fallen off, 
then been replaced piecemeal.

Last year, work began to stabilize and restore 
all of the columns. Crews have been working their
way around the building to remove
the marble slabs. They then have been installing
a steel framework that support what
looks like treated plywood panels. Once the
panels are in place, each column
is primed and coated with a substance
that will provide a better surface to adhere
the marble slabs.

At least, that is what I've been led to
believe is planned; I cringe to think that all
the work done on this iconic (for Indy!) building 
will result in a big faux-surface paint job!
