A woman depicted in a painting from 1860 bears an uncanny resemblance to  someone from our modern times as she appears to be captivated by a cell  phone in her hands.

The strange scene, spotted by a visitor to an art museum in Munich, can  be found in Austrian painter Ferdinand Georg Waldmuller's work 'The  Expected One.'

As is often the case when 'cell phones' appear to pop up in old paintings,  the remarkable discovery has some imaginative individuals suggesting  that there is some element of time travel involved in the piece.

However, art historians insist that, despite how it may appear, the  woman is holding something that may have been revered just as much as a cell phone at the time the painting was created.
