Fresco Jesus - the revenge

Image of Fresco Jesus - the revenge

Picture: Ebay

Here's a weird one - a picture by the restorer of 'Fresco Jesus', Cecilia Gimenez, has reached EUR610,000 on ebay. Next bid is EUR620,000 if you fancy it. I somehow doubt the winning bidder will pay up. But you never know. Maybe Alberto Mugrabi thinks she's the next big thing.

Update - a reader writes:

I think you have misinterpreted the eBay price for this picture. The comma is the European equivalent of our decimal point, so the price is only 620 euros.

Oops. Sorry about that. Lucky I'm not a journalist.
