A video of a 12-year-old boy in Taiwan, who accidentally punched a hole in a 17th century painting worth over a million dollars, has gone viral on the Internet.
The CCTV footage shows the boy tripping and his hand lands straight onto the painting, where he’s managed to do some serious damage. After the fall, the boy just stands there awkwardly wondering, if some punishment is coming his way soon.
According to a report on The Guardian the painting that was damaged was a 350-year-old Paolo Porpora oil canvas called Flowers, and it is valued at $1.5m.

Thankfully the boy’s family has not been asked to pay the damages. According to a report by Focus Taiwan News while the boy left fist-sized hole in the painting, he only damaged the bottom half of the painting.
