Yet again we have another artistic restoration to chuckle about. This time a 15th-century wood statue of Mary, Saint Anne, and baby Jesus painted over in a fanciful, neon palette.

“I’m not a professional painter but I’ve always liked painting and the statues really needed painting,” said amateur conservator, María Luisa Menéndez of Rañadorio, a village in northwestern Asturias, Spain.

It’s no fresco Jesus, but it’s sure one for the books.
