12-Year-Old Boy Takes A Tumble, Accidentally Punches a Hole Through $1.5 Million Painting
A 12-year-old in Taiwan accidentally punched a hole through a million dollar painting.
A 12-year-old Taiwanese boy accidentally took a tumble in the middle of a museum and punched a hole through a 35-year-old $1.5 million painting.
The painting was a Paolo Porpora oil on canvas called “Flowers.”
Footage released by the organizers of the "Face of Leonardo: Images of a Genius" exhibition in Taipei shows the boy's unfortunate fall.
The boy, who was holding a drink, tripped and stumbled over the protective rope and used the painting to break his fall. Instead, he broke the painting.
Organizers will not ask the boy’s family to pay for restoration costs, according to Taiwan News.
“The painting’s bottom right is damaged,” Sun later told reporters. “The boy’s hand made contact with the artwork and left a hole the size of a fist.”
This is one trip to the museum the boy will never forget.
