Not A Caravaggio

Here's a slightly better photo of that Martyrdom of St Lawrence which L'Osservatore Romano claimed to be a newly discovered Caravaggio (CLICK). The Vatican newspaper has now published an expert's opinion that dismisses its own claim. Looking at this graphic, it is obvious that St Lawrence's anatomy is doing some weird and wonderful things that only Aardman Animations' Plasticine Morph could achieve, but that aren't so funny. Caravaggio? Oh come on. Compare the anatomy of his Amor Victorious (CLICK).
