(via BBC News - Spanish fresco restoration botched by amateur)
“The once-dignified portrait now resembles a crayon sketch of a very hairy monkey in an ill-fitting tunic, he says.”
I think Edvard Munch’s, The Scream captures my reaction to the botched painting precisely.
is it bad that I actually prefer the botched restoration to the original? I think it has a lot more character?
WHY IS THIS SO FUNNY TO ME? Every time I see it, I laugh until I cry.
BBC has got to be yanking our collective legs.
