Two 17th-century paintings were found in a garbage container on the highway in the German state of Bavaria. Cologne police announced in a statement that two paintings were handed over to them and their owners have not yet been found. Both pictures were determined to be original. What an interesting situation. It is a pity to find such valuable artifacts in the trash.

German police appealed to the public yesterday to find the owners of two valuable 17th-century paintings found in a garbage container on a highway in the city of Cologne. Making an official statement, the police stated that one of the priceless paintings was a self-portrait of Italian artist Pietro Bellotti painted in 1665. It is really ridiculous and sad to see such a valuable painting in the trash.
