This is just really awesome. Reddit user Max Galuppo went to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, took a bunch of pictures, and realised later that his likeness was contained within a 1562 artwork he posed next to. The artwork, Portrait of a Nobleman with Duelling Gauntlet, was done by an anonymous artist. It’s kind of awesome to have a portrait painted in your likeness without you having to sit still for hours or travel 500 years back in time for it to happen.
