Jesus takes on a new look in 'restored' painting

Citing a story published by Gawker, The Young Turks' Ana Kasparian and Cenk Uygur reported on what may be the worst restoration of a Jesus painting ever.

Apparently, an elderly Spanish woman took it upon herself to restore a painting donated to the Centro de Estudios Borjanos in Borja, Spain, by the granddaughter of 19th-century painter Elías García Martínez. According to Gawker, "At the time, the Centro knew of only one painting by Martínez in Borja — Ecce Homo, a fresco on the walls of the church of Santuario de Misericordia."

The woman who "restored" the painting reportedly took it upon herself to do the work, without first asking permission.

  • Funny! Not sure I could do better, but I'm wondering if they checked her abilities before they hired her.

    It's a simple matter of wearing the wrong glasses while restoring.
