In 2003 the National Museum in Belgrade was completely re-built and redecorated. Among the preparations was an evaluation of the collections. As a part of this, the Foundation for Cultural Inventory worked one week on studying and digitizing the Dutch and Flemish collection in 2003. 

During this evalation a remarkable discovery was made.

'Inventory no. 1100' turned out to be a panel that was thought to have been lost. On top of this, it was also part of a grand five-piece Altarpiece: The Miraflorestable. The other parts were in Madrid, Cleveland, Geneve and Antwerp. The panels had not seen each other during centuries. A restoration was done after re-uniting the panels, after which a unique exhibition took place, which was very well received. 

The fascinating process of the restoration and the astonishing result have been captured in this book.
