Just Call Me Michelangelo: Woman Botches Restoration of 100-Year-Old Church Fresco Painting in Spain
Here we see two iterations of Elias Garcia Martinez' Ecce Homo: the original painted nearly 100 years ago in the Sanctuary of Mercy Church near Zaragoza, Spain, and the pitifully botched restoration done over the original by some random yo they hired because she had an art degree from Frank's College of Knowledge.
Zaragoza city councilor Juan Maria Ojeda had this to say about the situation:
"I think she had good intentions. Next week she will meet with a repairer and explain what kind of materials she used. If we can't fix it, we will probably cover the wall with a photo of the painting."
Freakin' amateurs, man.
