A painting kept in a Scottish farmhouse could turn out to be a Da Vinci worth over $150 million.
59-year-old Fiona McLaren had been given the painting by her father and hadn't thought much of it until she sent it to be appraised and discovered that it could be an original piece by Leonardo Da Vinci himself.
Experts at Cambridge University and the Hamilton Kerr Institute are investigating the painting in detail to determine how old it is and who painted it.
Fiona McLaren, 59, had kept an old painting in her Scottish farmhouse for decades. She reportedly didn't think much of the painting, which had been given to her as a gift by her father.
