Not Wilde about tomb restoration

The recent restoration of the tomb of Oscar Wilde in Paris has the hallmarks of a refuse bin. Flowers and leaves will become entombed behind the glass screen.

The limestone cleaning process is staining the surfaces of the tomb. This will contribute to its deterioration. Unsightly as all the lipstick was it actually protected the stone. There's no mention of Ireland, either, although we paid for the restoration.
