TIME TRAVEL: Painting From 19th Century Of Girl Using Smartphone Goes VIRAL
Painting from 19th century shows girl holding an iPhone
A painting from the 19th century named ‘The Expected One’ created by Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller has been plucked out of obscurity due to its shocking time travel anomalies.
The painting, which was unveiled int he 1850's, has caused a storm only because of one object in the image which resembles a smartphone in the subject's hand.
The painting depicts a young man, seemingly waiting for his love with a pink flower by the tree, as the girl is seen walking along the path 'obvious' to her surroundings as she is emersed in what seems to be a smartphone.
The object is rectangular, and the subject's stance eerily resembles how somebody walks while they are engaged with their smartphone, a common site in 2017 but not 1850!
Proof of time travel?
Some experts have suggested that the painting could be proof of time travel, but art historians argue that the girl in the painting is actually reading a small leather his book.
“The girl in this Waldmüller painting is not playing with her new iPhone X, but is off to church holding a little prayer book in her hands, ” said Gerald Weinploter.
Another painting which may be proof of time travel is a 17th-century mural which seems to depict a Native American holding an iPhone.
A Twitter user who ignited the whole 'time travel' theory said: "What strikes me most is how much change in technology has changed the interpretation of the painting, and in a way has leveraged its entire context, ” he said. “The big change is that in 1850 or 1860, every single viewer would have identified the item that the girl is absorbed in as a hymnal or prayer book.”
