An elderly parishioner was upset at the deteriorated state of a fresco depicting Jesus on the wall of a church in Spain. Years of moisture had taken its toll leaving a splotchy mess.
Showing the kind of can-do spirit that the ‘greatest generation’ was so famous for and is so sadly lacking these days in their successors, she decided to fix the painting herself.
The results were…. interesting, with one correspondent saying that the fresco “now resembles a crayon sketch of a very hairy monkey in an ill-fitting tunic.”
But we shouldn’t be too hard on her. After all, no one really knows what Jesus, if he existed at all, looked like so she really had little to go on.
