Sherman Chaos Bank restoration - part 2

Herman Gillis , aka Sherman - the man behind the famous Sherman filter bank made approximately 9 Sherman CHAOSBANKS back in the early 1980's / late 70s. This chaos bank may be one of them.
(If you have any info regarding this do shoot me an email).

The bank is almost 50 years old and is being restored.
In this interview, Herman discusses analog vs digital.

It was decided to re-arrange the panel. This is always a dilemma - the conflict between preservation of history and returning something to a working state.
So after much deliberation the final panel art chosen was:

The earlier designs were changed in favor of something more "classical" ... in keeping with the rest of the synthesizer artwork, and special aged paper was sourced to blend things into the whole.
I love the final result. Thanks heaps Ken. :-)

I especially like the dual reference to the unicorn. This mythical beast that is Ken Stone's symbol has also been used countless times in medieval Flemish (Belgium) tapestries. Belgium being the birth place of  Herman Gillis..........The unicorn is a link between the two.

Here is a test video of the Chaos Bank:
