A Fresco Turned Fiasco!

Ecce Homo (Behold the Man) by Elias Garcia Martinez has been an item of great local pride in the Sanctuary of Mercy Church near Zaragoza, for more than 100 years. However, with time it had lost some of its luster due to moisture damage. Until Cecilia Gimenez, a lady in her 80s, decided to take matters into her own hands and restore the image herself. Unforunately for all, she was not as qualified as Elias Garcia, and the result... was not a welcome one.
