These bronze statues could be the work of the celebrated artist Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni, according to evidence found in a series of older sketches.

If this new information turns out to be correct then the statues will be the only known existing examples of sculptures created by the Italian master Michelangelo. The statues, which are excellent regardless of provenance, are currently on loan to the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge. 

The statues depict two students during Fresher's Week.
