Boijmans van Beuningen museum has destroyed part of a ceramic art work. The woman fell over on top of an art piece entitled Coloured Vases, created by artist Hella Jongerius. Twenty of the 300 hand-painted vases broke into pieces and 20 others are badly damaged. The damage is estimated to be 100 million euros. The piece which took a year to make will be replaced. Luckily the artist took the news well; she even laughed "It is a priceless accident."
