…WANTS ROYALTIES FOR ACCIDENTAL MEME:
The elderly Spanish woman known for her botched restoration of a century-old Jesus painting wants royalties after the painting became an accidental Internet meme. Cecilia Gimenez wants royalties from the hospital foundation that owns the church where her “restored” painting has been attracting visitors. Gimenez and her family claim that the foundation made $2,600 in four days because her work attracted many tourists who wanted to see the painting in person.
