Did you see this in the news earlier this week?

NEW YORK: A clumsy art lover has accidentally ripped a Picasso valued at $US130 million ($143m) during a class at the Metropolitan Museum in New York. The woman made a 15cm tear in the lower right-hand corner of The Actor, an unusually large 1.8m by 1.2m canvas of an acrobat striking a pose. “A visitor attending a class lost her balance,” the museum said in a terse statement.

Wouldn’t you be heartbroken if you’d done this – how mortifying.
