Church officials have gone ape after a pensioner tried to restore a faded painting and ended up making Jesus Christ look like a monkey.
80-year-old Celia Gimenez decided to touch up the worn fresco of Christ wearing a crown of thorns at her church in Borja, Spain.
But the 19th-century painting of Christ has now been left disfigured and church officials are pondering what to do with it.
A town official said no-one realised how badly botched the painting was until the well-meaning volunteer rang town hall to say what she had done.
