The "it" story of international art this week comes from Borja, Spain, where 80 year old Celia Jimenez took it upon herself to touch up a fresco by Elias Garcia Martinez of Christ wearing a crown of thorns in the Misericordia church. The net has embraced the Jimenez image, and it is now an icon. There is something very memorable about the Jimenez image.I think we love this image because it is so child-like and innocent.
We will not be surprised if the Jimenez painting lands itself in the prestigious Maryland's Museum of Bad Art someday soon.
