Posted by geoff in News.

Spain seems to have it in for art, with amateur restorers creating laugh-out-loud abominations.

You all remember the butchery inflicted upon Ecce Homo back in 2012:

This was followed by 2 attempts to restore a painting of the Virgin Mary in June of this year:

The latest involved a statue in Palencia:

But all of these works are so derivative, considering that Mr. Bean first forged the creative pathway in this field some 23 years ago:

People need to vet these restorers better.

And both pieces are way more famous than they otherwise would have been, so i guess that’s something to consider.
