Faces Of The Day

In a restoration of a painting, the Vatican has found images of people who appear to be Native Americans:

The painting, by the Renaissance master Pinturicchio, was finished in 1494, just two years after Christopher Columbus first set foot in the New World. It has adorned the walls of the Borgia Apartments in the Vatican for 500 years but was only recently subjected to restoration work. The naked men, who appear to be dancing, were spotted by a restorer, Maria Pustka, as she removed centuries of grime.

I feel a History Channel Aliens Special looming on the horizon. But I find those faces mesmerizing.
