Man spots his double in 16th Century Italian painting

Italian painting

A twenty-year-old US man was startled to find his doppelganger in a 16th century Italian renaissance painting at a Museum.

Max Galuppo, a Temple University student, found his double in the painting titled 'Portrait of a Nobleman with Dueling Gauntlet' by an unknown artist.

What started out as a leisurely stroll through the Philadelphia Museum of Art on November 11 with his girlfriend, quickly turned into quite a surreal experience for Galuppo.

"It was really weird. He goes to Temple so we'd been saying for a while we wanted to go to the art museum," his girlfriend, Nikkie Curtis, told ABCNews.com.

"We went into the armour exhibit and he loved the helmets. He was completely oblivious to it, and I walked past it and was like, 'Do you see this painting right now? It looks just like you.'" she said.

Hundreds of internet users have commented on the amazing likeness since this snap was posted on the Reddit website on Monday.
