With artistic touches that combined the originality, heritage of the past and modernity of implementation, the cadres of the mirrors unit of the Maintenance and Engineering Construction Department at the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine completed the maintenance, development and re-glazing of the wall and ceiling of the Holy Sanctuary of the shrine of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him).
This is according to what he explained to the al-Kafeel Network, by Mr. Hassan Saeed, the head of the mirrors unit, who added: “The glazing of the sanctuary of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him) is among the works that the Holy Shrine was keen to implement in a manner consistent with the sanctity of this holy place, and also because of its clear impact on the engineering and aesthetic design, as the restoration process used high-efficiency materials. And the first step was to remove the damaged parts of the mirrors and old materials used in the construction process, to be replaced by modern materials of high durability and light weights and more solid, while preserving the old design but, with artistic touches, which added a clear elegance to the project. "
Saeed added, "The project's work went through many stages, most notably the treatment of the walls and ceilings with special materials, to increase their durability and strength, and then the implementation of the designs for the glass inscriptions and fixing the mirrors, which were preceded by the work of wiring the electrical systems, lighting lamps and cameras of the Holy Sanctuary."
It is noteworthy that all the planning, design and maintenance work done is technically and engineering self-sufficiency and with specialized and skilled Iraqi hands, and that the work is carried out continuously without any hindrance to the movement of visitors, and according to a deliberate work plan through which the sanctuary is divided into several sections.
