The derp paintings in Beja

The botched Ecce Homo Painting in Spain has gone viral. The story itself is hilarious! But it certainly wasn't the first! In Portugal, in the city of Beja, a priest defied the counseling given by the experts and comissioned a restoration of the paintings of the church. The problem? He called a painter, a HOUSE painter, living in the parochial nursing home. A man that, at the time, couldn't see or walk right. Either way, he was pressured by the priest to do it, ruining the paintings forever.

You can watch the video here (it's in portuguese).
