A woman caused about $2,00,000 in damage when she knocked over about 10 pieces of artwork while taking a selfie at the 14th Factory Exhibition in Los Angeles.

Video captured by a surveillance camera showed that the woman attempted to take a selfie with one of the displayed crowns. When she crouched down for the best angle, she suddenly fell backward and knocked one over and caused a domino effect, as all the art pieces were set closely to each other.

All other pieces in that row were knocked over. Their value is estimated at $20,000 each. A spokeswoman of the 14th Factory confirmed to Fox News on Saturday that three sculptures were permanently destroyed, while others were partially damaged.
