Mercury gets a pedicure?

Originally standing atop a smokestack at the Kimball Tobacco Factory in Rochester, NY, Mercury was moved to a new location in 1973 - now on the Lawyers Cooperative Publishing Company in downtown Rochester. Today Mercury was the object of some attention by a couple of workers swinging on a big crane. I'm not sure if it was just an inspection, or maybe some cleaning? Repair? If I find out, I'll amend this entry! Click the link above for more info on the Kimball Tobacco folks, and on the statue and it's history. Click on the pictures to embiggen!
