A mural called “Humanistic Education” by artist Fred Ross showing three shirtless models on the left, which were based on sketch of a young Tom Connors , is shown at Harbour View High School in Saint John, N.B., in this undated handout photo. Decked out in his trademark Stetson and plywood-pounding cowboy boots, it’s hard to imagine country-folk legend Stompin’ Tom Connors as a male model. And yet, a recently acquired artist’s drawing from the 1950s - obtained by the Beaverbrook Art Gallery in Fredericton - offers a revealing glimpse of Canada’s best loved troubadour as a lanky, squared-jawed teen wearing nothing but tight athletic shorts and high-topped sneakers.

An Italian police officer stands by a copy of the “Salvator Mundi” (Savior of the World) by Leonardo da Vinci, in Naples, Italy, Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2021. Italian police have recovered a copy of Leonardo da Vinci’s 16th century “Salvator Mundi” painting of Jesus Christ that was stolen from a Naples church without the priests even realizing it was gone. The discovery was made over the weekend when Naples police working on a bigger operation found the painting hidden in an apartment. Police chief Alfredo Fabbrocini said the owner offered a “less than credible” explanation that he had “casually” bought it at a small market. (Italian Police via AP)
