Here we go, again: Betwixt Brown
During a press conference in Milan, Italy, Wednesday, July 25, Slavisa Pesci, an Italian amateur scholar, claimed that the Da Vinci Last Supper contains, when we look hard enough, a composite picture of a figure clutching what appears to be a young child. He also says that a superimposed image (with its mirror image) shows a goblet in front of Jesus Christ - perhaps a depiction of his blessing of bread and wine - and transforms two of the people sitting at the table into knights. The websites where this is all explained have - mysteriously - crashed.
So the fullish story is in the Telegraph. In England there is a tradition called the "silly season" when any story will do.
