Remember Ecce Homo, the best meme of 2012? You are not alone. According to a New York Times report, the botched painting restoration seen 'round the world has worked out quite well for Borja, the small Spanish town that houses it.
It's been almost exactly one year since octogenarian Spanish widow Cecilia Giménez took it upon herself to destroy an 80-year-old Jesus fresco painted on the wall of her local church — and what a year it's been.
When last we left elderly Spanish villager Cecilia Giménez, she was attempting to cash in on her infamy as the world's worst fresco restorer by trying to copyright her beastly tarnishing of García Martínez's Ecce Homo.
Cecilia Giménez, the 85-year-old Spanish villager who took it upon herself to transform Elías García Martínez's Ecce Homo (Behold the Man) into Ecce Mono (Behold the Monkey), has apparently recovered from the anxiety she initially experienced and is now looking to get paid.
It's been described as "a crayon sketch of a very hairy monkey in an ill-fitting tunic" and compared to a sloth, but the world's worst restoration of a century old Spanish fresco has delighted so many over the last few days that thousands have gathered to object to its destruction.
