Watch a 12-Year-Old Boy Trip + Punch a Hole in a $1.5 Million Painting [VIDEO]
He would have been better off just doing a face plant straight to the floor.
A 12-year-old Taiwanese boy strolling through a Leonardo da Vinci exhibition at Huashan 1914 Creative Park in Taipei lost his balance, and used a painting valued at $1.5 million to break his fall. Oops.
The painting is 'Flowers,' a 17th century still life by Paolo Porpora. It now has a hole in it that's the size of a 12-year-old fist. The Washington Post says the exhibition's curator has asked exhibitors to clear the boy of any wrongdoing, and has suggested that the museum's insurance company, not the boy's parents, cover the cost of restoration.
