In Palencia in northwestern Spain, the statue of the Virgin Mary and the Baby Jesus has been restored to a shame.
Let's do a comparison yourself.
This statue, made in the early 20th century, was a loving face with a smile before restoration, but if you look at it after restoration, you can't find it at all.
A local painter, Mr. Capel, shared this photo on social media, criticizing it as "closer to the face of a cartoon character," and local netizens also criticized that the restoration of the statue is nothing but a catastrophe, saying, "The restored statue's face resembles the US President Trump." I did.
However, this is not the first time in Spain that the reconstruction of cultural properties has been controversial.
In 2012, there was controversy when a believer in his 80s in Borja touched a 100-year-old mural of Jesus and restored it to a reminiscent of a monkey.
Not long ago, in June, a reproduction of the Baroque painter Murillo's'Conceptualization of the Virgin' was entrusted to an amateur restorer, resulting in such a disastrous result.
Netizens said, "This is the level of creation, not restoration?", "Do you do that on purpose? I'll do better than that even if I ask elementary school kids!" And responded.
