New Caravaggio Discovered

Following up on the recent discovery of Caravaggio's earthly remains, the Vatican newspaper is reporting a previously unknown painting by the Baroque master may have been found. Tentatively titled "The Martyrdom of St Lawrence" the image depicts a mostly-naked man (duh) "with one arm outstretched as he leans over leaping flames beneath him."

Art historians will examine the painting, presumably spending a long time near the cleft of St Lawrence's ass, to determine its authenticity.
