Statue of Dom Sebastiao, 1890 / tourist
In May 2016, a tourist unwittingly destroyed this work while visiting Lisbon’s Rossio Railway Station. Hoping to take a selfie with the life-size replica of the 16th-century Portuguese king, the 24-year-old man climbed up on the statue’s pedestal; the statue promptly toppled and fell to the ground, shattering on impact.
The tourist tried to flee the scene but was apprehended by security. He is currently awaiting trial.
