(PCM) Can we say oopps!! While visiting an art exhibition in Taiwan and 12-year old boy stumbles and trips and while trying to catch his balance accidentally puts his fist through a 350-year old painting worth $1.5 million dollars.
The organizers of the art exhibition ,which was titled “Face Of Leonardo: Images of a Genius”, have released a video of the incident which left a fist sized hole in the bottom of a painting titled “Flowers” by Italian artist Paolo Porpora who is a leading still life artist who created baroque-style works that often featured fruit and flowers. The exhibition features 55 rare and precious paintings that were collected from some of the finest art collectors around the globe.
It is quite apparent that the young man was incredibly nervous after the incident occurred, however it was completely apparent to the event organizers that what happened was indeed an unfortunate accident. The painting has since been restored without a problem and is now back on display as part of the exhibition.
