Long Hidden, Vatican Painting Linked To Native American
This is a fascinating close-up of a painting uncovered in the Vatican in recent years. I don't know any more about this than what is in the news reports. There are plenty of links, but I chose NPR. Excerpt below. More beneath the images.
The fresco, The Resurrection, was painted by the Renaissance master Pinturicchio in 1494 — just two years after Christopher Columbus first set foot in what came to be called the New World.
