Yowch. A 12-year-old boy in Taiwan tripped at a museum and broke his fall — with a $1.5 million painting.

The Paolo Porpora oil painting is 350 years old, and was on exhibition in Taipei. In CCTV footage, you can see the boy wandering about following a guided tour when he stumbles and falls, punching a hole in the canvas painting.

The painting was on loan in Taipei as part of the “The Face of Leonardo, Images of a Genius” exhibition, with some 50 paintings by Italian Renaissance artists on display. The accident caused the organizers to temporarily shut admission on Monday morning before reopening in the afternoon.
