    How are they capable of recreating this when art is so hard?

    Mark my words, in 40-50 years that “restoration” will be as much a treasure, if not more, than the original was. It looks like a lost Manet.

       40 Years?  They need to start bringing in the tourist dollars now.  $10 to see Meme Jesus.  Put up a screen ewith scrolling internet comments next to it.  That might actually inspire me to visit a church.

  6. Some news.

    The original painting is recoverable. And the “restoration” may be extracted without destroying it! If true, we would have the best possible new. The original painting restored, and our Ecce Homo visitable. The new, in spanish, is here:

    I saw a video some time ago with the paintings of the old lady, and I liked them. She is good at landscapes, the problem is the faces…

    I love the fact that the caption says, “Remember the elderly woman’s …” like it wasn’t just a couple of weeks ago. Wow, internet time is something special I guess …

    Is there any version of this that is scaled up enough to use as wallpaper?
