Displaying a mosaic

From: Rob Lewis <rob.lewis0>

I am currently working on a Victorian wall mosaic, which, due to the
nature of the chapel where it is to be displayed, needs to be
removed and re-hung periodically throughout the year. Does anyone
have any experience of providing such a support system?

The mosaic has been backed onto foaming epoxy, which can be drilled
into. The situation is complicated by the fact that the mosaic is to
go into a recessed arch, which fits the shape of the mosaic with
very little space around the edges, so it can not be 'dropped' into
place, but needs (presumably) to be offered into the recess.
