Famous Medium Geese Painting a Fake?

     The famous painting of the Medium Geese is being questioned as a possible fake. I noticed a reference to this on Jane Akshar's blog and thought I would pass it along.

     The painting is supposedly from a tomb at Medium that dates to the reign of Sneferu (the founder of Egypt's Fourth Dynasty) and is now in the Cairo Museum. A more detailed article about the research that led to this conclusion can be found here.

     If this painting is indeed a forgery it would be very disappointing as it is a truly beautiful work of art.
