Aug 22 ; I have today seen a Maltese scene non religious circa 1965 large tryptich by Emvin Cremona , approx 5 foot x 5 foot each panel. One panel depicts the sun [circa 10 inches diameter] , this has an applied piece of glass pushed onto wet paint. The glass then has been smashed and lies attached to the dried out paint. As the picture is within a set of original glazed show cases, the broken glass is deliberate.
