Real Turkey Of A Job: Ancient Roman mosaics ruined in botched restoration job

Officials in Turkey are attempting to fix at least eight ancient mosaics, after they were ruined during a shoddy restoration job.

The artworks were being cleaned and moved to a new museum in southern Turkey when they were spoiled.

Images of the mosaics reveal how they are almost unrecognisable, and pieced back together in different shapes, in the wrong colours or with missing tiles.

    But the Turks invented mosaic restoration.

    Why would Turkey take care with non-Islamic art? It’s another FU to anything nonMuz.

    • I suspect it was.

      Tourism would be a good reason.

  • The incompetence of Muslims is due to their moronic philosophy of life.
