One of the most difficult and taxing steps in the restoration process is reattachement of the fresco. The wall between the naos and pronaos contained beam ends protruding out of the church facade. Exposed for a long time to the elements, this wall decayed to its core. The beam, being painted on both sides, was extracted with regard to the paintings, which were carefully removed and restored, and the rotten beam was replaced by a new one. The reattachment of the paintings took place during the summer of 2019 and required a great deal of attention to reposition them according to their original outline. Four restorers and the Japanese vulunteer Yumi Nakajima worked diligently to finish this process.
