A well-meaning octogenarian has stunned art experts after taking it upon herself to restore a treasured century-old fresco - with distinctly amateurish results.

Elias Garcia Martinez's depiction of Jesus has held pride of place in a Spanish church for more than 120 years.

But over the past 18 months moisture in the church caused the fresco to deteriorate - prompting a local woman in her 80s to whip out her paintbrush and try and fix it herself.

Oh bless her, she meant well.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

Yes, me. I thought this had been posted before, but when I did a search nothing came up.

Mine was coming from that scene from Bean.
