Cleaning Lady Scrubs Million Dollar Sculpture

Oh dear, a cleaning lady in Germany is in big doo-dah after she destroyed a sculpture in the Ostwall Museum thinking it was a dirty mess. The sculpture titled When It Starts Dripping From the Ceiling was valued at $1.1 million. The cleaner mistook the  beige layer of paint (representing rain water) on the tower as a  stain so began scrubbing at it until it became nice and shiny. Oh and just to make it a little extra cringe worthy the sculpture was on loan from a private collector. Egads!

    Now that is what I call an eccentric cleaning lady…
    In another fifty years it will sell for a staggering $5.1
    million so no need to worry about it is there Loon? 🙂

    Bloody Artists, they
    Are Always on the Moan 🙂
