Famous Laocoon orig'l (2005 theory: Michelangelo forged it)

Rome, Italy

In addition to the link under "theory" above, here is
an excerpt from the New York Times with an
added thought by William Wallace on the possibility
this was forged by Michelangelo.

That's what the missing article mentioned, although, as with all conspiracy theories,
there was an answer for that too. Not convincing, but another theory.

Nice photo, but nonsensical theory. The Laocoon was found buried beneath the rubble of Nero's palace. Michelangelo was one of the first to see it excavated.
