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!
