When an elderly parishioner volunteered to restore a prized fresco, it seemed like a great idea.
Ecce Homo (Behold the Man) has held pride of place in the Sanctuary of Mercy Church near Zaragoza for over a century.
Enter ‘art restorer’ Cecilia Gimenez – Behold the Woman.
With a few dabs of her brush, fresco lady applies some much-needed TLC to JC. In this case, however, the TLC stands for Trolled Lightly, Church. By the time the octogenarian’s finished, Christ looks less like Ecce Homo and more like an eccied homo who’s gobbling balls.
Lol eight seconds in when fresco lady blames it all on the priest – the standard defence of everyone accused of impropriety in church. Roflcopter 23 seconds in when the camera pans from a photo of the original fresco to a shot of the IRL hatchet job they’re left with. Failure has never felt this good. Now the Sanctuary of Mercy Church are left nursing a restoration in need of restoration.
Pussy Riot openly attack the church and get jailed for three years. An old lady trolls them softly and gets off scot free. Nice work, grandma.
