Man Finds His Doppelganger in 16th Century Italian Painting

Man Finds His Doppelganger in 16th Century Italian Painting

November 14, 2012 - What started out as a leisurely stroll through the Philadelphia Museum of Art on Nov. 11 with his girlfriend, quickly turned into quite a surreal experience for Max Galuppo, 20, of Bloomsbury, N.J.

Galuppo, a Temple University student, found his doppelganger in a 16th century Italian painting by an unknown artist titled "Portrait of a Nobleman with Dueling Gauntlet."

"It was really weird. He goes to Temple so we'd been saying for a while we wanted to go to the art museum," his girlfriend, Nikkie Curtis, told ABCNews.com. "We went into the armor exhibit and he loved the helmets. He was completely oblivious to it, and I walked past it and was like, 'Do you see this painting right now? It looks just like you.'"

Although Galuppo's resemblance to the dark haired, huskily built, bearded face seems obvious to the 735 Reddit users who have commented on the photo since Curtis uploaded it to the site late Sunday night, Galuppo, at first, said he failed to recognize the similarity.

"To be honest, I didn't see it. I didn't see the resemblance," Galuppo said. "And then I saw the picture of me next to it, and you can't deny that."

    With over six billion of us, it should be more amazing that there are not more of us who have 'doubles' ... either living or in the past. It has nothing to do with reincarnation.... but more with a similarity in our common DNA and a limited variation within common human features we all share. Its more remarkable to see how different we really are in spite of this.

    I can see whoever posted this story is a Reddit user.
