You can generally count of Japanese online art community Pixiv to offer an irreverent take on current affairs. Last week, the world was buzzing about the story of an elderly Spanish amateur who attempted to restore a century old fresco in the Spanish Santuario de la Misericordia Church in Borja and accidentally ruined the art in the process.
The internet had redubbed the fresco ‘Ecce Mono’, meaning ‘Behold the Monkey’ instead of ‘Behold Man.’
Lenny Bruce said “tragedy plus distance equals comedy," and look like Pixiv artists had enough distance.
