Woman who botched restoration of Spanish fresco now wants to be paid
A Spanish woman who famously botched the restoration of a 19th century fresco of Jesus Christ is now insisting she be compensated because of the number of tourists who now flock to the church and pay to see it.
Cecilia Giménez, according to a report in the El Correo newspaper, has hired a lawyer because the Sanctuary of Mercy Church church is now charging visitors admission to see the work. Giménez feels she should receives royalties for her work because the church made 2,000 Euros over the course of four days.
Ahhhh, Catholicism at its best.

I love the feel of the tree taking over this shot because this church was no longer open and was showing signs of gradual decay. The tree is slowly taking over the shot the same as nature and the elements are gradually taking over the church.
