Artist behind 'Ecce Homo' fresco fiasco auctions her own work on eBay12/14/2012
Cecilia Gimenez, the amateur painter who catapulted her Spanish chapel into international headlines by "restoring" a howling smiley face onto a 19th-century fresco of "Ecce Homo" is making her original artwork available just in time for the Christmas season. The 80-year-old frugal artist is selling an original piece on eBay called "Bodegas de Borja," which appears to be a weathered, crumbling villa (what do you want to bet the actual building it’s modeled after is a brand new stucco mansion?) and has 31 bids so far, topping out around $820. If you want to place a bid and buy a piece of Internet history, the auction is open until Dec. 18 and the proceeds go to charity. [Source]
