Laughable Botched Painting Restoration

When Rachel told me about this botched painting restoration I was thinking "How bad could it be?". Then I saw it and just burst out laughing! This is the worst job since the Seinfeld episode (see below about 2:50 in). I guess the owner of this lives in Spain and the painting is by famed artist Bartolome Esteban Murillo. It's a painting of the the Virgin Mary's face. Turns out a furniture restorer was paid about $1300 to clean it. The cleaning destroyed the face but "I can fix that no one will ever know!"
