A 12-year-old accidentally tripped and punched a hole in an Italian painting worth $1.5 million while it was on exhibit in Taiwan.
- The painting titled ‘Flowers’ was one of 55 pieces at the Faces of Leonardo exhibition in Taipei.
Video footage shows that the boy ‘braced’ as he tripped over a platform and fell onto the painting.
It’s reported the organisers won’t seek damages from the boy’s parents for the painting, which has now been restored.
The child is lucky – a Leonardo da Vinci self-portrait (worth $231m!) was also on display.
