Amateur restoration gone wrong

An elderly parishioner from the Sanctuary of Mercy Church, Borja, Spain, took it upon herself to “restore” one of the church’s beloved 19th-century frescoes -– Ecce Homo by Elias Garcia Martinez. The unhappy results can be seen in the before-and-after images, and in the aftermath of the incident the work now has a new nickname: “Ecce Mono,” or Behold the Monkey.
