It wasn’t some sort of radical statement but more of a simple footing problem. When this 12-year-old Taiwanese boy tripped not even the string like barrier could withstand the eventful fall creating a hole in the 350 year Paolo Porpora oil painting stated to be worth 1.5 million dollars.
The organizers are not making the boy or his family pay for repairs or damages since the video does show it was an accident.
“All 55 paintings in the venue are authentic pieces and they are very rare and precious,” says the exhibition’s Facebook page. “Once these works are damaged, they are permanently damaged.”
