Spanish fresco ruined by good intentions
They say no good deed goes unpunished. A fresco, titled "Ecce Homo," in Borja, Spain became a media sensation after it was discovered that amateur art restorer Cecilia Jimenez destroyed the painting. The fresco, which was painted by famous Spanish artist Elias Garcia Martinez was turned into a cartoonish rendition of Jesus Christ.
The incident became so famous that tourists now visit the Spanish city to see Jimenez's work.
