Botched Fresco Restoration Paints the Internet With Delight
News of an elderly Spanish woman’s well-intentioned but bungled attempt at restoring a 19th century church fresco reverberated across the Internet Wednesday.
Octogenarian Cecilia Gimenez took it upon herself to fix a deteriorated fresco of Jesus Christ originally painted by Elias Garcia Martinez. The result of the amateur painter’s work was what a BBC Europe reporter described as “a crayon sketch of a very hairy monkey in an ill-fitting tunic.”
We scooped our jaws off the floor for a quick minute and found the funniest takes on the unfortunate restoration. Flip through the gallery below for a few of our faves.
