( 4UMF NEWS ) Amateur Destroys Church’s Fresco Of Christ:
Juan Maria Ojeda, a town official in Borja, says 80-year-old Celia Giménez decided to touch up the fresco of Christ wearing a crown of thorns in Misericordia church. He says no one realized how badly disfigured the painting was until she rang town hall to say what she had done.
The fate of the painting, completed in 1930, has made national news in Spain, the AP says.
“The priest knew it,” she says. “I’ve never tried to do anything hidden.”
