#3 Fresco Rescue

Hello Folks! Fresco Rescue! Gingerfightback Saves The Day! You may have heard today about the elderly parishioner in Spain who attempted to restore a prized Jesus Christ fresco.

Ecce Homo (Behold the Man) by Elias Garcia Martinez has held pride of place in the Sanctuary of Mercy Church near Zaragoza for more than 100 years.

Cecilia Giminez took her brush to it and did what can only be described as a not particularly good job!

An official declared, “The once-dignified portrait now resembles a crayon sketch of a very hairy monkey in an ill-fitting tunic.”

Oh Dear! What’s To Be Done?

Step Forward Gfb’s arts expert Brian Sewer and his mates from The Struggling Monkey free house, Al Fresco and Al Dente.

We whisked them out to Zaragoza to carry out urgent repairs to the work and the results are spectacular!

Good As New!

“We don’t want paying, we are just glad to help,” muttered Al Fresco, “What’s yer poison?”

Does the Original remind you of anyone? That’s Right – The Princess Bride Herself – Our Kate!
