Workers prep “Mother and Child” by artist Raimondo Puccinelli, front, by wrapping the pedestal in layers of blankets, then wrapped in protective plastic. In back is the sculpture “Obos” by George Tsutakawa. The two sculptures from downtown Fresno’s Fulton Mall will go to Los Angeles for conservation as part of the city's $20 million project to reopen the six-block mall to automobile traffic.
