Whoops! A 12-year-old boy visiting a Taiwan museum took a tumble ... and ended up destroying a $1.5 million work of art.

The boy was at the museum in Taipei on a guided tour when security footage captured him tripping right in front of the Paolo Porpora oil painting titled "Flowers," which is 350 years old. He tries to keep himself from falling over and ends up smashing a fist-sized hole in the painting, valued at $1.5 million.

The painting was on loan as part of the "The Face of Leonardo, Images of a Genius" exhibition, Mashable reports.

Lucky for the clumsy lad, he won't have to pay for the damages. According to Focus Taiwan News, insurance will cover the cost to have the painting restored before it is sent back to Italy.
