Ecce Sloth (?)

The recent story of an 80 year old woman's attempt to restore a priceless church fresco in Spain has received a lot of attention for it's "well-intentioned" perpetrator's lack of artistic ability. Well, I don't know. A dear friend pointed out to me today that she might have had an artistic statement in mind afterall. She might actually have been paying homage to the children's book illustrator Eric Carl and his seminal work, "Slowly, Slowly, Slowly," Said the Sloth. We are so quick to jump to conclusions.
