Giotto's Fly

One day during his apprenticeship (with Giovanni Cimabue), Giotto painted a fly on the nose of a figure in one of his mentor's unfinished paintings. Cimabue later returned to work and repeatedly tried to brush it away, before suddenly realizing that he had fallen victim to one of his mischievous student's practical jokes.
