It couldn't happen to a nicer chap. A 19th century fresco in a Spanish church has been ruined by the artistic attention of an 80 year old woman. !(upload://rbJm317LSL0NToHpgk5fam3ExBg.jpg)The result is interesting but has caused an outcry around the world.
Cecilia Jimenez, the 80-year-old woman who inadvertently ruined a 19th-century fresco of Jesus, says she had the priest's permission to carry out the work."Everyone who came into the church could see me as I was painting," Jimenez said. "I didn't do anything secretly. The priest knew. How could I do something like this without permission?"
