Ever try help and make things 50 times worse?...

She was sincere, but WAAAAAY out of her league...I actually feel a little sorry for her...

Elderly parisioner's touch-up to 19th century church fresco turns Jesus into cartoon

Quote:
An elderly parishioner’s attempt to touch up this cherished but deteriorating Spanish church fresco has turned Jesus into a cartoon figure.

The unidentified woman, in her 80s, was upset at the damage that moisture was wreaking on the 19th century fresco in the Sanctuary of Mercy Church near Zaragoza.

Without authorization, the devoted woman scraped away some of the paint, leaving white marks on the wall.

Then she took out a paintbrush and replaced the strokes of artist Elias Garcia Martinez with her own, Spanish media reported.

When she realized how badly it had turned out, she contacted the city’s culture councilor, Juan Maria Ojeda.

“I think she had good intentions,” Ojeda was quoted as saying.

As it turns out, the woman’s efforts weren’t even necessary. An organization that restores Spanish artwork, El Centro de Estudios Borjanos, had just received a donation from Martinez’s granddaughter to repair the damage done by the moisture.

Ojeda said art experts are trying to determine whether the woman’s work can be undone.

“If we can’t fix it, we will probably cover the wall with a photo of the painting,” he said.


And here's her "restoration"...

Fortunately, the confidentiality laws I operate under as an EMT forbid me to comment.

And if the laws didn't forbid you, I'd expect a six volume set?...
