New World Found Under Adoration of the Magi
Leonardo da Vinci, The Adoration of the Magi (detail).
ROME, ITALY.- Maurizio Seracini has been researching Leonardo da Vinci’s work The Adoration of the Magi. He found, below the surface, an under-drawing. Dan Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code, said, "Whatever the true nature of the under-drawing, it had yet to be made public."

Mr. Seracini gave an excusive preview of the results to The Guardian. In the foreground there is a ruminating figure surrounded by a sea of faces. Behind Mary there is an oddly shaped, incomplete structure. There are horsemen on the other side engaged in a struggle. Mr. Seracini stated he found a whole new world under the surface created by Da Vinci.
