Hidden Icebergs

X-rays have revealed the first known oil painting of Antarctica (left), which was hidden for over 200 years underneath a tropical image. Painted by the neglected British artist, William Hodges, he made the canvas while accompanying Capt. Cook on his second voyage to the southern continent. The image is now on view at the National Maritime Museum in England. More info(1).
