That, of course, was her intention. It takes 80+ years to fully realise that point of view.Grenge Di Origin said:Personally I think it symbolizes how many Christians warp the bible to their own benefit, without really paying close attention to the details that give it a much more realistic and well-rounded view, though imperfect.
She basically stole it to restore it, though as someone in the thread already pointed out, a couple days after the old woman had taken it, the place that was holding it had hired a professional to restore it, but of course they didn't realize she had stolen it. So people obviously cared about the painting. I'm guessing that the relative of the original artist, that the painting was being donated back to, wasn't too thrilled about what happened either.arbitterm said:Oh boo hoo, one less painting of Jesus. He's easily the most depicted person in classical art. And nobody cared about the painting until this, even though it was clearly falling apart. They should give it back to her and let her finish it. At least her painting is unique.
Well, the news bits I've watched seem to hint at that she did it without anybody's permission and anybody watching her doing it, and they used the words "took the painting". So, I just don't see how she could have done it in the church without anybody seeing her and stopping her.dunam said:
