    Man without a Face
    More Pictures

    Our Loch Ness Monster is famed the world over, and pops up in very strange
    circumstances from time to time.

    Now she has surfaced at the centre of an art mystery in Italy.

    This centres around a charcoal drawing dating from 1949, which is described as

    lived and travelled in Italy.

    He is most famous for his so-called impossible structures, such as Ascending
