What was the most expensive thing you ruined when you were a kid? Bet it doesn’t come close to this 12 year old boy in Taiwan who was visiting an art exhibition with his mom recently when he tripped and punched a hole through a R20 million painting by Italian master Paolo Porpora. The painting is estimated to be 350 years old and our chap was holding a drink when he lost his balance and put his hand out…straight through the painting.
Love how he freezes when he realises he might have f**ked up a tad.
If only there was sound and he said ‘my bad’.
“One of the organisers of the exhibition, Sun Chi-hsuan, said the hole in the 200cm tall painting, which depicts sunflowers, roses, tulips and carnations, was estimated to be the size of a fist, Focus Taiwan reported.
Sun said the boy taking a guided tour with his mother when the incident occurred on Sunday.” [News.com.au]
