Conservation refers to a description of the process by which the design, material, and historical worth and integrity of the built heritage of human beings are prolonged via interventions that are planned in a careful manner. The person who is involved in this pursuit is called or referred to as a conservator (Faleer, 2009, p.38). The decisions regarding how and when to be engaged in an intervention are very important to the eventual conservation of the object that cannot be moved or that is stationary. The decision is eventually based on value, i.e. a combination of informational, contextual, and artistic values is usually taken into consideration (Zouche, 1998, p. 47). However, in some instances, we find that a decision of not having to engage an intervention might be the best choice.
