Re-framing Del Piombo's 'Raising of Lazarus'

I've mentioned every now and then the progress of the National Gallery's reframing of their major Sebastiano del Piombo, The Raising of Lazarus. The finished frame, above, is quite magnificent, and a testament to the skills of National Gallery framing director Peter Schade. You can read more about the project here in The Art Newspaper, and here on The Frame Blog. The new frame is a composite of antique parts and newly recreated additions. After close inspection recently, I couldn't begin to tell which bits were old and which were new.
