The art related story that is taking the internet by storm involves an 80 year old woman in a small town near Zaragoza, Spain. Upset over the deterioration of the 100 year old fresco Ecce Homo by Elias Garcia Martinez at her local Sanctuary of Mercy Church, the woman took the matter into her own hands and set about restoring the work.  Unfortunately, some people do not think that she remained true to the original image.

…the local centre that works to preserve artworks had just received a donation from the painter’s granddaughter which they had planned to use to restore the original fresco.
