Homeowners Find Rich Surprise In Scary And Leaky Attic

In Toulouse, France, a couple's roof started leaking in their home. The woman sent her man to investigate the issue. They had lived in the home, but one thing they had never explored was the attic--they feared what might be up there.

Maintenance and repairs often happen at the worst time possible. The man carefully cracked open the attic and prepared himself for what might fall behind the sealed wall.

He could not believe his luck when he found something that may potentially be worth $136 million. The homeowner may have found a baroque masterpiece that has been missing for the last century. Caravaggio’s gruesome painting titled “Judith Beheading Holofernes,” was perfectly preserved in this sealed off area of the home.

It is unclear how the painting ended up in this home. Caravaggio only painted two pieces on the biblical heroine Judith slicing off the head of the Assyrian general.

One of the two is on display in Rome’s National Gallery of Ancient Art, but the other vanished sometime in the early 1700s. The painting had never been traced, but it is believed it might have been locked away within this old home for over a century.

If it is authentic, it could be worth about $136 million. Even if there is doubt of the true artist, it would still receive tens of millions of dollars. It seems the rain was worth more than its weight in gold.
