Oh Cecilia!

Ecce Homo (Behold the Man) by Elias Garcia Martinez/Cecilia Gimenez

After the heartfelt restoration job that Cecilia Gimenez conducted on the fresco of Jesus  at the Sanctuary of Mercy Church near Zaragoza, some more of her work has come to light:

Mantegna's classic piece deserved some added decorum, Gimenez thought
Da Vinci had forgotten to add a pink handled fork as the talking point of The Last Supper, apparently

And she rectified some loss of detail on the Turin Shroud
