Okay, that was pretty funny.

That doesn't even look human anymore.

Yeah, she really brought out His Divine Nature!

She was undoubtedly schooled by a master with heavy Picasso influences. And fur.

Looks shopped. I can tell by some of the pixels.

Oh god.... I can't stop laughing. I'm trying to imagine the panic that must have been going through her head when she realized things were going horribly wrong. I literally have tears rolling down my cheeks I'm laughing so hard.

Lol...

From "My God, why hast thou forsaken me?" to "I see what you did there..."

I have to bookmark this for my 86 year old artist mother. She will laugh.

Nah, it's more like "at first I was like awwww but then I serioused" don't you think?
 
2012-08-22 06:52:26 AM
I don't see what the issue is... that looks exactly like a piece of toast.
 
2012-08-22 06:56:28 AM
The church could always sell it on Etsy.

Yeah, but "Father, Son and Holy Toast" is generally taken to be a misprint.

"with good intentions"

I wonder if she gets away with it. Because, you know, there are a few old churches in my town with really old frescoes that needs some caring.
 
2012-08-22 07:00:49 AM
Is it bad that as soon as I see the first few words...

"Elderly woman takes it..."

... I'm immediately thinking this story is of a completely different nature

Hey now....it sorta looks like a lion.

Oh my god. First time in maybe fifteen years I've snorted burning hot coffee out of my nose.

From sad Jesus to "ORLY?" Jesus in a few simple brush strokes.
 
2012-08-22 07:22:15 AM
Jesus was an hermaphrodite eskimo.

Cool.
 
2012-08-22 07:22:50 AM
Jesus wept.

Really, whoever was storing it was destroying it far more effectively than this old woman ever could. In two years it went from almost 100% to big pieces flaked off. It wasn't being taken care of anyway, might as well make Happy Tree Time with it.

It looks like a cat. Appropriate that an old woman did it, I guess. Never thought I would cry over a painting of Jesus.

Yeah, I was thinking about that too. Seems like it was pretty far gone by the time the old woman got to it- far worse than should happen in just two years.

Sorry 'bout that :)

What did you do to the fresco?

Judas Priest, Jesus' real name was Corky.

That was the big mystery for me, too. How the hell did it deteriorate like that in only two years?
