An artwork on display at the Shanghai Museum of Glass was the casualty of a mother’s lack of control over her kids. “Angel Is Waiting” depicts a pair of wings made of glass, which were damaged by two visiting boys.
Surveillance camera footage shows the mother snapping pictures of her boys who have crossed the rope barriers protecting the piece. The duo is seen jumping and bouncing and touching the sculpture in plain sight, until a part of it was yanked out.
The piece had been intact since 2014 when it first debuted at the museum. After the incident, the artist changed the name of the work to “Broken” and left it in its spoiled state on display, along with the clip of the accident.
