A new discovery has been made on the walls of St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna, Austria. High on the plastered porch walls of the bishop’s portal (an area that now serves as the Cathedral’s gift shop) hides a wall painting thought to, at least in part, have been done by the hands of Albrecht Dürer.

The image appears to be a triptych, depicting St. Catherine and St. Margaret flanking St. Leopold III, a patron saint of Austria.
