Cecilia Gimenez’s Elías García Martínez’s Ecce Homo is a hit with toursits
CECILIA Gimenez’s updating of Elías García Martínez’s Ecce Homo (aka Ecce Mono) has turned the fresco into a big hit with tourists. The Spanish town of Borja is now famous:
On Saturday, hundreds of curious visitors queued up outside the Iglesia del Santuario de Misericordia church, where the image is painted on a column.
“The previous painting was also very pretty, but I really like this one,” a woman who had travelled to the town said on public television.
How about that, then? Groupies can get the fresco look here. The parodies are here.
