'The Trek Begins', the painting which is thought to show Hillary and his famous guide Tenzing Norgay in the centre, striding out on the trek.
Never-before-seen paintings recording Sir Edmund Hillary's record-breaking expedition to Mount Everest have been found in a house clearance 66 years later.
The four oil paintings were the work of a member of the British expedition party that conquered the world's highest mountain in 1953.
The previously-unknown pictures include one of a strapping Hillary setting out for Everest base camp in March 1953 surrounded by Sherpa guides and native children.
Another is thought to show Hillary and his famous guide Tenzing Norgay.
