Fuzzy Jesus

Fuzzy Jesus

This year the “fuzzy Jesus” turns 10 years old, you’ve probably seen memes with him, but not everyone knows about this fairy tale success story of naive art. In a temple in the small Spanish town of Borje, the humid winds began to erode a fresco of Jesus. Cecilia, an active 80-year-old parishioner, offered to have it restored for free, and after a couple of years, “it” turned out. The scandal was short-lived, because the Jesus got so wiggly that tourists started coming to town. Now it is a symbol of Borje, the temple produces a souvenir with this fellow, in every shop you can find a cahor with a fluffy Jesus, and even opened a museum dedicated to this phenomenon. The old lady, of course, demanded deductions, and now a percentage of the sales goes to her and to the pensioners’ fund.
