Amateur Restorer Totally Messes Up A 500 Year Old Statue And People Are Not Having It
A 16th century wooden carving of St George on horseback, battling a dragon has been restored in a way that many locals are not too happy about.
According to The New York Post, a priest of the church, which is located in northern Spain, asked a local schoolteacher to do the restoration work. The woman reportedly works as an arts and crafts teacher.
Not exactly your professional restorist.
When the new work was unveiled to the public, many people immediately took to social media to criticize the restoration work, saying that the artist made the carving look cartoonish, with some people even comparing the carving to the Belgian comic TinTin.
Others compared the botched job to the famous Ecce Homo painting, which was destroyed in a similar way.
