    Cecilia Gimenez, 81 claims she attempted to restore a fresco painting at the Roman Catholic Santuario de la Misericordia in Borja, Spain because she was upset with the deterioration of her favorite local representation of Jesus. Her alterations were discovered by the artist's granddaughter, Teresa Garcia.

    The work, by Elias Garcia Martinez was not a part of any altarpiece, but locals who attached sentimental value to the work were outraged at the painting's new “monkey-like†appearance. Authorities in Borja initially suspected vandalism, and though they do not believe Gimenez's actions to be malicious, they are considering legal action.
