La Fortuna ( Fortune flying over the world )

La Fortuna, the painting by Guido Reni which it was claimed was given by Dorina Neave to the people of Noak Hill. An extremely valuable painting not the sort of thing that those who appreciate fine art would give to the peasants. Of course it was a copy that was handed over, the peasants seem to have afforded it the respect it deserved and promptly lost it, or possibly dumped it. Either way it was never seen again. I have tried to track the present whereabouts of the original, and it appears to be in the Vatican Museums in Rome Needless to say, its not hanging in the Victory Hall in Noak Hill. And take a tip from me, don't try to cover up with Andrex if its windy.
