Amateur art restoration goes all wrong

A fresco of Christ by artist Elias Garcia Martinez was painted more than 100 hundred years ago in the Sanctuary of Mercy Church near Zaragoza, Spain. A recent donation from the artists granddaughter was intended for the paintings restoration. However, cultural officials found that an elderly parishioner had already done her own restoration. The woman, who is in her 80s, did an alarming and unauthorized touch-up of the original work that completely covered Martinezs painting, although she claims the priest gave his permission. The woman had eventually realized she was having trouble with the job, and contacted the cultural ministry for guidance, but it may be too late to save any of Martinezs work. If the painting cannot be recovered, a photograph of the original may be mounted over what now adorns the wall which you must see to believe. The restored picture became one of the biggest internet memes of the year. The elderly art restorer, Cecilia Gimenez, became an instant celebrity, so we revisited the story later.
