Boy hits a painting - level 1
In Taipei, there is an exhibition. It is an exhibition of paintings. Many paintings are by Leonardo da Vinci.
A boy is at the exhibition. He is next to a painting. He is listening to his teacher. He does not look where he’s going. He loses his balance. He pushes a hole in the painting. A camera films this. The painting is worth $1.5 million.
The boy did not want to do this. He is not in trouble. People can fix the painting.
