Another Spanish Art Restoration Gone Wrong Is The Internet’s New Favorite Meme

Oh, dear. Did we learn nothing from Ecce Homo?

Spain has done it again. A local handicrafts teacher in a little town in Navarra completed this rather, er, interesting “restoration” of a 500-year-old painted wooden statue of St. George. Apparently, the parish authorities of the Church of St. Michael requested the teacher to do the work.

But you know what they say: hell is paved with good intentions. And despite the church’s good-hearted desire to freshen up the 16-th century sculpture, the now pinked face, bright colored armor warrior is the Internet’s new favorite meme.

Some have labeled the handicrafts teacher’s work as an amateur facelift. Others compared it to the infamous Ecce Homo 2012 fiasco. And many are just having a blast with this hilarious restoration gone-wrong.
