Does a Painting from 1860 Show a Time Traveling Woman with an iPhone?

I wish time travel was a real thing, but some people think it is. Especially now.

There’s a random painting from 1860 called “The Expected One” by Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller that’s going viral right now.  And there’s a good reason:  It might show a time traveler.



There’s a woman in the painting and it sure LOOKS like she’s holding an iPhone and maybe even looking at the screen.



And sure, some people MIGHT say she’s actually holding a small prayer book in her hands . . . but I know a phone when I see it.
