the road to hell
The road to hell is paved with good intentions. -proverb
Good intentions gone awry- have you ever seen such a thing?
Such as, for example the attempted restoration and botched repair of a 19th century Spanish fresco (some say masterpiece) in the church of Santuario de Misericordia by an elderly church volunteer in 2012 where, unbeknownst to anyone within the church, an 80 year old amateur had been quietly and disastrously ‘repairing’ the painting (known as”Ecce Homo” by Elias Garcia Martinez) over a span of years.
Alarming, intriguing, troubling, amusing. Will people travel en masse and from afar to see this new work, as they may have travelled to see the last?
