A 14th Century portrait that hung in a Cambridge museum for decades has been revealed as double-sided after a 600-hour restoration project.

The Virgin Mary and Christ Child by Italian Renaissance artist Pietro di Niccolo da Orvieto, had been on display at the Fitzwilliam Museum.

Conservators preparing it for an exhibition found another painting on the reverse panel.

Experts believe it depicts the wound Jesus Christ sustained on the cross.
