SItting on a goldmine...

Or maybe not...
A tiny red chalk sketch, carried to Australia in a handbag and hung in a Perth house for generations, is being studied as a possible work of 15th-century Italian Renaissance genius Leonardo da Vinci.

Hypothetical time, would you sell the picture if it was a Da Vinci? Or would you do a deal with various art galleries to pay you a fee to display the picture for a few weeks a year?

I wouldn't want to be responsible for its security.

I'd either flog it, or charge a viewing fee, as long as it wasn't in my house :)
