The research group of the New Zealand Antarctic Heritage Trust, New Zealand, discovered on the southernmost and coldest continent a painting written 118 years ago.
The author of the work is the British Edward Wilson. Despite the fact that he was a physicist by profession, Edward was fond of painting.
The painting, which was found, was able to survive quite by accident. And the main factor here was the penguin litter. Inside the hut, located on the cape, the researchers found various garbage, dirt and dust, as well as the above-mentioned wastes of non-flying birds. It was under them that the scientist’s picture lay safely. At the moment, the work is transferred to the museum.
