Fixing the Fresco

Hello Everyone hope you’re having a nice Saturday.

I saw this in the news the other day!

And I laughed HARD. The picture on the left is a 19th century fresco painting of Jesus Christ by Elias Garcia Martinez which is hung in Sanctuary of Mercy Church near Zaragoza¬†and the picture on the right is the ‘restored’ painting by a local 80-year-old.

Now I’ve got to say it’s pretty obvious the restored painting is a bit of an epic fail but I’ve got it hand it to her, she tried her best and doesn’t deserve all the bad press.

In fact I actually tried to copy the fresco myself and it was very hard.

Take care.

  1. Haha! I read that article and I agree, she doesn’t deserve the bad press but she did turn the thing into a yard sale.

    Of course she deserves the bad press! She ruined a beautiful fresco. I hope it wasn’t considered valuable, because it’s gone now.

    “it’s cool I fixed it” that tag line is hilarious and I laughed out loud.
