    Just 15 Hilarious Tweets About That Botched Sculpture Restoration In Spain That Went Viral

    Another meme-worthy moment on the internet.

    The other day, this sculpture depicting a woman smiling on a building in Palencia, Spain, went viral because the restoration work made it look just...slightly different from the original.

    The original sculpture has a woman's realistic smiling face, while the restored sculpture has a cartoon-like face with large, offset eyes and a gaping mouth
