sforzaHidden beneath seven layers of paint,  a mural of trees  sketched by Leonard Da Vinci have been uncovered in a room of the Sforza Castle in Milan. Restorers working on the Now the Sala  delle Asse (Room of Planks), which Da Vinci decorated during 1498 with a mural of trees, have  uncovered hidden sections of the artist’s original work, according to The Daily Mail.
Da Vinci was the court artist for the Duke of Milan at the time he was painting the mural. Historians are not sure if he completed the work because at the time, Milan was conquered by the French who then used the castle as army barracks. Today the castle is a major site in Milan, housing several museums and art galleries.
