An art collector in Spain has been left furious after a painting was given a botched restoration.
The collector paid over €1,000 for the picture of the Immaculate Conception to be cleaned by a restorer.
The painting, by Bartoleme Esteban Murillo, has now been left unrecognisable as a result.
There is now law in Spain forbidding people from restoring artwork, and the botched job was slammed by the country's Professional Association of Restorers and Conservators (Acre).
Acre said: ''This lack of regulation translates into an absence of protection of our heritage.
''In recent years, conservation-restoration professionals have been forced to emigrate or leave their professions due to a lack of opportunities.''
