Great ChrisJ 2018-10-28 6:08

Hello Jorges,

Poor old St Sebastian. Already 2 arrows stuck in his chest and leg and more to come :-( Ah yes, I can see St George with the trophy dragon head skull, and St Christopher carrying the Christ Child across the water. Tfs!

Default To ChrisJ: iconography

chris

after some years seeing religious images we began to learn iconography, anyway some saints aren't so easy to be identified. what I think is interesting is how a legendary saint like saint george & Christopher or the oldest ones like sebastian got so many popularity across the centuries. modern ones have no such impact for us.

take care

jorge
