Parishioners at the Sanctuary of Mercy Church near Zaragoza in Spain now pray to a monkey Jesus thanks to an elderly artist who botched the restoration of Ecce Homo (Behold the Man) by Elias Garcia Martinez. An 80-something female parishioner (who from the looks of it had never used a paintbrush before in her life) took it on herself to restore the image. Juan Maria Ojeda, the city official in charge of cultural affairs, described her effort, saying “The once-dignified portrait now resembles a crayon sketch of a very hairy monkey in an ill-fitting tunic.”
Monkey Jesus, have mercy on her soul, and give to her the banana of your forgiveness.
