However, this headline was worthy of the repeat tag.

The last time I saw a restoration turn out this badly, it was led by George Lucas.

Repeat tag is cool. Is this a new thing?

Maybe the link should point to the original thread.

But yeah, looks like a monkey in a robe.

Whoa. Don't you think you're being a bit harsh on the lady who desecrated the painting?

It was greenlit earlier today, hence the "repeat" tag on this one.

The repeat tag is for admin use only. We use it when a repeat thread is too good to throw away (redlight),

Give it some time, and it will evolve into a human....

yeah heard about it the first time it was greenlit.

It took me like three hours to finish the shading on your upper lip. It's probably the best drawing i've ever done

That reminds me of Seinfeld.

George: What is this? This is a drawing.

Clerk: Looks real, doesn't it?

George: This is a cartoon!

Clerk: Hey, I had to draw that guy from memory. Considering, I think that's damn good.

George: But it's not a photograph, I need a photograph!

Clerk: Then you better get a camera.

Makes sense, but the headline is only too good to throw away if you're familiar with Mr. Bean.

In my head, I'm only about halfway through the imagined skit in which he silently touches up the painting.

Future suggestion: portfolio of the specialist's work before allowing them to start work on the piece.

My father has done a few restorations, although not quite of this caliber. First he provided his qualifications and a portfolio. The second step was to photograph the subject which also included taking measurements, determiing pigmants and materials, research other works from the sam artist when possible. Then he would provide sketches, details about the restoration process, and a mock-up of the completed subject to verify accuracy and to be sure this is what the customer wanted as some restorations require stronger color tones or details previously unseen. Only once the customer signed off on the mock-up did the actual restoration process begin. Customer was included in the process by allowing frequent visits during the restoration, allowing for corrections as needed.

I'm pretty sure they were the victim of some nuttie buddy wanna be artist who was dying to put another notch on their easel by claiming to restored an important religious relic.
