A Portrait of The Hanged Redeemer?

There is considerable controversy about the historical provenance of this painting. Originally thought to be no more than a thousand years old, Professeur Stellenburg Thorn has persuasively argued that it has been retouched comprehensively and after extensive use of White-Ray technology and chemical analysis of the underlying paint he believes the evidence suggests this canvas is more of the order of 20,000 years old. He has tentatively suggested that the badly over-painted brown band around the neck of the subject is a rope and that this may be a portrait of The Hanged Redeemer.
