An project born out of an art-lover's curiosity, archaeology and state-of-the-art technology is bringing back to life a forgotten mural by a prominent Romanian-Israeli Dada artist, Marcel Janco.

Two years ago, the Janco Dada museum in the artist's village of Ein Hod, northern Israel embarked on a restoration project of his studio.

Old, black-and-white photographs of Janco at work were used as a reference by the museum workers in the restoration process. It took him over six months to reveal the treasure hidden underneath.

Preliminary tests on other walls in the studio have proved that other murals are still hidden under the layers of paint.

The restoration works have so far cost an estimated 27,000 US Dollars and a similar amount is needed to continue.
