Restored!

A Spanish lady in her eighties, Cecilia Gimenez, recently set the Internet and art world on fire. Her curious attempt to restore the fresco "Ecce Homo" by Elias Garcia Martinez in the Sanctuary of Mercy Church near Zaragoza made world wide news. So the net buzzed with more attempts of restoration based on her depiction of Jesus many refer to as "Beast-Jesus" (clearly related to an Ewok). You can see the hilarious results of Mrs. Gimenez brave act at the tumblr page of the Beast-Jesus Restoration Society.

So I couldn't resist....
