(ORDO NEWS) — Conspiracy theorists are convinced that they have found evidence of time travel in a painting from the 1930s. If you look closely at a painting depicting the arrival of settlers in Springfield in the 1620s, you will notice one unusual detail, reported The Sun.
The mural located on the post office building in Springfield (US) depicts the English colonist and fur trader William Pynchon.
Among the chaotic scene of the picture, you can also notice a modern addition, namely, how one of the men looks at a 21st century gadget. It looks surprisingly similar to a smartphone.
We are talking about an Indian, who is depicted in traditional clothes for this people, with feathers on his head. There are no less authentic people around him.
However, in the hands of this man is a rectangular flat object, which he holds exactly the way smartphones are held, and at the same distance at which people read text or look at pictures on the screen.
It is remarkable that the mural has not been changed since it was painted in 1937, and the artist himself died in 1982, a quarter of a century before anyone heard of the iPhone.
Conspiracy theorists believe that since this object is similar to one of the Apple models, it may confirm the existence of time travelers who transport modern technology to the past.
However, art expert Brian Anderson found a more logical explanation for the unusual object depicted in the painting.
“There is reason to believe that what the man is looking at is not an indigenous object, but rather of European origin, for example, mirrors, which were often presented during such exchanges. The way a man holds it, if he is really looking at his own face reflected in it, of course, makes sense,” says Anderson.
