    "Flowers" by Paolo Porpora

    "Flowers," by 17th-century Italian Baroque artist Paolo Porpora, was one of 55 pieces on display in "The Face of Leonardo, Images of a Genius" exhibition.

    But Sun said the cost of repairs to the damaged painting would be covered by insurance, meaning the boy and his family won't be asked to pay up.

    "I'm actually thinking of asking the boy back to be a volunteer in the exhibition for one day," Sun said, "as a penalty."

    I was thinking the same. I've been in plenty of museums and always NO food or drink allowed.

    Why do fatties always walk with their feet ducked out? Ever notice that? Is there something about being fat that makes you have to walk with your feet pointing outward?

    I was thinking the same thing.... plus why would they have a 1.5 million dollar painting unprotected, at that level, without any kind of real buffer from the patrons.

    IOW, it seems like an accident waiting to happen.

    Yes. Very curious. And Sun was quick to mention the insurance, as if, *record scratches to a halt* the painting were intentionally placed at that level, with minimal security. *adjusts tinfoil newsboy cap*

    Here's the painting BTW. I can't deny the technical marksmanship on this piece but is it REALLY worth 1.5 Million? Still lifes are so common and this isn't even close to something insanely good like a Vermeer or van Utrecht. Much like that Jesus Mural that got ruined by some dingbat granny and became something of value as a result I can't help but feel this little shit being shown destroying the painting on National Television will make it something that the public actually cares about now.

    What if a drunken Beth trips and punches a hole in one of Howards paintings? Probably on purpose.

    Art museums all over the world have priceless works out in the open, close to the slobbering and pudgy unwashed.

    :(
