(MSN) — It sounds like the beginning of an incredibly touching story: An elderly Spanish woman, living near an ancient church, takes it upon herself to restore a damaged 19th-century painting, “Ecce Homo.” This is when the world finally discovers the talents of an as-yet-unknown artistic powerhouse, right? Well, no: The octogenarian reportedly approached the task “with good intentions” but “without asking permission” — and the result is the slightly insane painting we see to the right.
Can anybody definitively say she’s wrong? Every Catholic is jumping down this chick’s throat about desecration and whatnot. Hold your horses, people. This could be a dead-on replica. Everybody sees Jesus differently. To some people he’s a seven foot tall, white middle easterner with 6 pack abs and a flowing mane. To Kanye West he’s Kanye West. To an elderly Spanish woman he’s an eggplant with a neckbeard and a Jew fro. They all sound equally plausible to me.
