Amateur Artist Botches Restoration of Ancient Jesus Sculpture

Amateur Artist Botches Restoration of Ancient Jesus Sculpture:  The art world is expressing shock and outrage after learning that yet another Amateur artist in the Asturias region of Spain convinced church officials to let her restore an ancient 15th century sculpture of Mary and Jesus - and then failed miserably.

Oh, for God’s sake - so to speak.  Guess no good deed goes unpunished.  Apparently, not everyone appreciates seeing priceless works of art work turned into cheap, garish Disneyesque characters.  Just goes to show, you just can’t please everyone I guess!  And we all know how fussy those art critics can be.  

Now I’m the first to admit I don’t really know much about art, but I do know a good piece of candy when I see one and whatever the hell that is on the right - sure looks delicious.  It would be the perfect choice for any Easter Basket if you ask me - so what’s the problem?

Johnny, when I saw this in the news I was just appalled. Your take on it made me laugh. 
The figures look to me like someone put Jesus and Mary Halloween costumes on Jesus and Mary.

How do we know the sculptor wasn’t an ancestor of Hanna or Barbera?

IT seems to be a common occurance in Spain these days.

Shall we conclude that Jesus was a designer baby with left of centrist tendencies? 

Neon rainbow or neon G O D?

& Ol' Joseph has an expression as though he's contemplating translation of Finnegan's Wake to Farsi

&, yeah,

Barring nuclear holocaust for the next four hundred years, the two women virgins? to each other?  and their virgin child look to be well preserved for at least the remainder of the first millennium since some nutritionally malnourished, materially poor soul labored over their creation leading to what for all artistic purposes is a Second Coming.
