A painting from the 1930's is raising eyebrows because it seems to show a Native American gazing at a cell phone.

The piece, entitled 'Mr. Pynchon and the Settling of Springfield', depicts a meeting between English settlers and Native Americans in Massachusetts during the 17th century.

Amidst the rather chaotic scene showcased in the painting is one moment which looks eerily familiar to modern observers: a Native American sitting in a canoe looking intently at a small black rectangle held in his hands.
