        The 20th-century fresco of Christ before, left, and after elderly amateur artist Celia Gimenez restored it in the church of the northern Spanish agricultural town of Borja.



        81-year-old woman who turned a damaged fresco on a church wall in Spain into an international joke. Well-meaning amateur Cecilia Giménez — a parishioner at the Santuario de Misericordia in the small town of Borja — set out to restore the fresco by artist Elias Garcia Martinez, worn over time, to its original glory.

        That's awful. She destroyed it. Now it looks like it should hang in the primate house at the zoo.

        I saw this Mark and was very close to posting about it myself. Why in the world would a church have an amateur artist restore this historical painting. It isn't the woman's fault i place the blame on who ever approved it. I hope some famous artist catches wind of this story and can save the day and try to restore and repair the damage that has been done.

        I've seen this yesterday on TV, it's both funny and sad. But very funny, I laughed for quite a few minutes.

        It reminds me of this movie sequence, starring Mr. Bean:

        It was a really strange decision to let an amateur do the restoration.  I mean, what did they expect?!

        Great find Johnny, I completely forgot about that scene but it fits this story perfectly.

        Jesus looks like a chia pet.  I think they should have asked to see some sample work or something.
