It wasn't the pointing, it was his elbow.How do you point at a painting so hard that you poke a hole in it?
I hate people like that. There is only so much displayed on the screen, you don't have to ACTUALLY TOUCH IT. A general point would do.Yeah, I saw that in a newspaper. What an incredible idiot. Maybe you should like, not point right at a painting that apparently isn't behind protective glass. That's like people who point at things on the monitor by shoving their grubby fingers so close they touch the damn things. Frigging primates.
It is old cotton(I think) and very stiff from being treated/painted. Here on the news they said he fell a bit and that is what did it.MinasMorgul said:Ain't old canvases really thick? Meaning he'd have to hit it pretty hard, right? And with the amount of momentum and force you need to damage the painting you'd figure he would be more careful, like people said?
Atleast he dosen't seem to be in shambles over it.
