Fezzik Fresco

Cecilia Jimenez, the amateur art restorer, a resident of Borja, Spain who is in her 80s, saw a deteriorating fresco of Jesus Christ in her local church and thought she could fix it.

The results were less than successful.

The fresco, titled “Ecce Homo,” was painted by famous Spanish artist Elias Garcia Martinez. Seeing it worn down in the Sanctuary of Mercy Church, Jimenez took it upon herself to freshen it up, according to Spanish news agency EFE.

After looking at her work, I knew immediately who she intended to render…it’s Andre The Giant as Fezzik From The Rob Reiner classic film, The Princess Bride.
