Old woman tries to restore valuable painting..

and makes a big f**king mess of it.

The image on the left, above is by 19th-century artist Elías García Martínez. On the right, is a horribly botched restoration job by an old Spanish woman who apparently meant well, but is also apparently blind.

The woman in her 80s, a neighbour of the church in which the fresco is located, attempted to restore the painting ‘without permission but with good intentions’.

But a donation from the artist’s granddaughter was about to fix that when the neighbour got in first to have a crack at fixing it up.

The results were not quite as she expected, however.

Once the budding artist realised she was in over her head, she confessed to local authorities.

A professional restorer is reportedly now set to assess the damage and see if the fresco can be saved.
