Why doesn't the new Jesus have a mustache, beard, or long hair life the old? Is this supposed to be serious..

They ruined a beautiful piece of art. And its outrageous, done by someone to deliberately mock humans.

Unity the 80 year old woman who did it was sincere and she really thought she was helping. Just a very simple uneducated old lady. but yeah its going to cost thousands to have it restored.

On another note, it makes you wonder how many artifacts are out there being used as plant pots or ashtrays, or how many tapestries are nailed up and being used as curtains

I'm not saying the woman herself is at fault, and she may have been geniunely trying to help, but it was OK'd by other parties and this was a world treasure, gift, if you will. I certainly hope her feelings are not hurt by what I wrote, and apologize, to her for I would imagine the work is very hard to do. But I feel a decision was made behind the scenes that was politically done.

. Good grief, granny made Jesus into a BEK (black eyed kid).

Well this is dreadful but I can certainly relate to her predicament and that of Mr, Bean (thanks to the person who provided the clip for us to enjoy). Who amongst us hasn't at one time or another ruined a recipe or an art project or some other endeavor while putting that last "finishing touch" that ends up an utter wrong turn that shuts out all hope of redemption? Deep sigh.

On the bright side, granny has great potential as a folk artist. And I must say, her style certainly is distinctive and memorable. I will never remember the original ten minutes after I exit this thread. But I'll be seeing the new version for years to come...in my nightmares.

It is outrageous. Then again, the end result is also hilarious. Seriously. That is out right funny, no matter how you spin it. Too bad yet then again, too funny.

I laughed myself rotten for about 5 minutes when I first saw this.

Restoring paintings is always a bad idea, no matter what shape it is in. Once somebody else applies paint to it, it isn't original anymore. It's like recording over a musicians album and repackaging it, or rewriting a chapter in somebody's book.

Anyways, it's just a religious painting, so nothing of significant value was lost. Jesus paintings are a dime a dozen. I'd be really angry if something like this happened to The Mona Lisa or The Scream, though.

Serves them right for monkeying around with the painting.

I feel bad for the old lady all she wanted to do was help and ruined the picture..
For all we know, this could actually be the most accurate painting of Jesus ever made.. I think she reinterpreted Jesus as a 21st Century abstract..
I personally I think the fresco should be left as it now its brilliant !

No one approved it, she took it upon herself to do it, the church etc knew nothing about it until the woman called them and told them she had completed it. Also the church had just received a donation from the original artist's grand-daughter to professionally restore the painting, but sadly (or hilariously) the 80yr old had already begun her own restoration with disastrous (or hilarious) consequences.

No conspiracy here, just a well-meaning but totally unqualified person who without anyone's knowledge undertook the task herself

Never fails - someone will make a profit out of a fail.

It's has become such a big hit that she wants copyright and a cut of the profits.



The Spanish octogenarian who made a laughingstock out of a 19th-century fresco of Jesus when she bungled its restoration ended up creating a tourist attraction for her local church.

Now, Cecilia Giménez wants a cut of the profits, Spanish newspaper El Correo reported Wednesday.

Giménez has lawyered up and seeks to copyright the image after the picture of her shoddy handiwork became an Internet sensation in August and inspired countless memes.

While people were split over the outcome, with some mocking her version as “Behold the Monkey,” the church saw an uptick in visitors — so many that the fresco had to be roped off and attended to by a security guard. But donations didn’t match up, and the church decided to charge admission of 1-Euro per person, according to Spain’s La Vanguardia newspaper.

In four days, the sanctuary raked in about $2,600.

Shame on the Church for taking money to view the picture. People aren't supposed to laugh their heads off in church and I really want to know how they feel justified taking money for admission. It is like a carnival freak show.

Now, as for this old lady. Here I am praying for her because I feel sorry for all the shame she must endure and she's thinking she's the next Picasso. At least she wants the money for charity, she says.....
