I came to the conclusion I'm more of a sneak than anything. I usually break and run/hide the evidence.
But this, this is beyond the pale. Poor King Tut. His beard was a bit wonky. Actually some dudes at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo were cleaning Tut for a showing and knocked off his beard. Oh what to do, what to do?! Yeah, they glued it back on.
Let's have a moment of silence and think about that.
They also scratched the king's golden shroud whilst scraping off excess glue. Oh, the infamy....
Won't be the last time someone tries to do the job themselves. I'm sure it happens every day in many a household.
There was Chinese vase that once belonged to Emperor Qianlong which turned up on an antiques show that had been made into a lamp.
