By George, It’s Happened Again!

Apparently, a local high school teacher was appointed by the Church of San Miguel de Estella in Navarre, Spain to restore a 16th century carved wood statue of Saint George, rather than enlisting a proper art expert. Unfortunately, the teacher’s restoration resulted in St. George turning into Tintin:

This is reminiscent of the 2012 fiasco where an elderly woman attempted to restore a fresco of Jesus:

Can someone please do us a favor and keep these art treasures out of the hands of amateurs?

And by the way, we believe we have a picture of the art teacher:
