Bad Day: 12-Year-Old Kid Falls in Museum and Punches Hole Through $1.5 Million Painting

If you’re having a bad day today, just be glad you aren’t this kid. At an art exhibition in Taipei called “Face of Leonardo: Images of a Genius”, a 12-year-old Taiwanese boy tripped and fell into a 350-year-old oil painting by Paolo Porpora, putting his hand right through the artwork. The painting called “Flowers” is valued at $1.5 million. (source)

Hopefully the gallery staff have some duct tape! Photos of the damage below!
