Under the ancient fresco in the Louvre and found the man


Whose image is hidden under the famous Italian fresco in the Louvre? The answer to this question, researchers want to know who discovered under the plaster is hid from prying eyes picture.

Art historian Bianca Jackson and her colleagues specializing in the conservation and restoration of works of art, decided to study the mural Trois hommes armés de lances, which shows three men with spears. Scientists have suspected that the picture has a secret, as it is connected with the name of a famous collector of the XIX century Gianpietro Campana, who was engaged in buying up and reworked in his own way the various works of art.

Initially, the researchers tried to “look” under the picture of the wall, using a variety of methods, including X-ray radiography, x-ray scanning, infrared photography and reflectometry. However, none of the above methods did not show anything unusual. They then used terahertz spectroscopy technology, which found its application in the security scanners at airports.

Trois Hommes Armes de Lances

When the screen suddenly appeared the picture, we do not believe their eyes – said Ms. Jackson, speaking before the American Chemical Society (ACS) at the annual meeting in New Orleans (USA).

Beneath the folds of tunic one of the men spotted the scientists mouth, nose and eyes. They have suggested that the portrait of the mysterious man was written thousands of years ago. He appeared long before the wall was painted in the 1800s.

Although Jackson and her French colleagues have no idea about the man in the mural, they hope to apply this technology to the study of other ancient works. The next object will scan Russian icon and walls Turkish shacks. Who knows, maybe they can find unique ancient image, the existence of which no one has ever guessed.
