As AHN is committed to sharing both the sublime and the ridiculous, I thought that some readers might be interested in a story published by Tech Times. It revolves around claims investigated by VICE Magazine that a nineteenth century painting by Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller (1793-1865) shows a young lady using an IPhone 12 (pictured).

This, it has been claimed, may be proof of a 'time travelling' person visiting the past. VICE Magazine even sought out an expert from an Austrian art agency to ask about these claims, who quickly and correctly pointed out that the figure is in truth holding a small bible.

Do get in touch if you've ever spotted any time travellers in paintings, I'd be glad to hear of them.
