    They should have called Tuffnutz or musicmacd or Micha der Wolf or any of the other masters on this forum! 0774924E-8507-4890-8B21-D7F02B9CA013.jpeg

    That really is sick, they should push the dude into the street and let him get chased by those bulls they all seem to like in spain, the sculpture would have had more value had he just left it alone, now it's just a joke.

    Man Spain screwed this one up , Did they just find a china doll face painter to paint this thing??
    Usually when a sculpture needs repainted many hours , days and weeks are put into matching the original paint, Not only the colors but what it is made of. Whoever hire the person who did this should also be in those streets with the bulls and have their shoes laces tied together so they can't run to fast :D

    Spain has a history of this. Yeah, that's the "restored" version on the right.

    I can't tell if the "artist" used Deco Art or Apple Barrel. Couldn't have spent much money on the paint. Obviously didn't on the painter.
    If you stand very still and quiet, you can hear a soft whirring sound. That's Leonardo DaVinci rolling in his grave. Bet he's up to about 1700 rpm by now.

    Just another example of how people don’t want to pay a decent price for art. Good art is priceless. Don’t be cheap people.

    Yes, pretty disappointing from a country that brought us Goya, Velázquez, Picasso, Dalí, and countless other masters.
