On October 27, the group of women was visiting the International Arts Center Main Avenue in Yekaterinburg, Russia when they went to take a photo alongside Francisco Goya’s etching from the Los Caprichos series and Salvador Dali’s interpretation of it, according to the Russian News Agency TASS. In surveillance video footage released by the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) on Twitter, three people can be seen looking at art on the gallery’s walls — including one who seems to be taking a photo — when the large art display suddenly falls over. In the corner of the fallen structure, a person can be seen standing in shock before a group gathers around the damage.

MIA Russia “The incident is being investigated,” the employee told TASS. “The works of art are being examined by specialists.” Following the incident, officials received a written request from the deputy director of the gallery, asking that they properly prosecute the group for their actions, according to a tweet from the MIA.

It is currently unknown how much the women accumulated in damages and whether they will face further legal consequences. The International Arts Center Main Avenue exhibition is still open and welcoming visitors.
