A set of wooden 15th Century sculptures were restored by a parishioner after the local priest gave her the authority to freshen up the statues.  The previously plain statues are now covered in the red, green and pink paint Maria Luisa Menendez used.  She claims not to be a professional but the images needed to be painted and having used colours that pleased her, her efforts seemed to applauded when her neighbours liked it.

The new garish images of Mary and Jesus, of Peter are still displayed in the chapel in a hamlet of El Ranadoiro, this is the Asturias region of northern Spain.  Asturias’ officials, local councillors and Spanish art conservation association (ACRE) are not pleased with the results.  The images were put on social media and it attracted much discontent.
