Default There’s a Surprise Happy Ending for That Catastrophically Botched Jesus Painting

The restoration of a Jesus fresco captivated headlines last year after an elderly artist monumentally failed in her attempt to return the artwork to its former glory. The 19th-century painting, which once showed Jesus Christ wearing a crown of thorns, ended up looking entirely different following the catastrophic "restoration." But just one year later, the situation has taken a surprising turn, with residents of Borja, Spain -- and the artist -- actually making a profit from the flap.

Making lemonade.

I still submit that if someone like Hundertwasser had (re)painted that, we would have legions of art critics praising its genius.
