Heavens, this is in a church?

I think the background is a museum, but it was probably originally in a church as a memento mori.

St. Bartholonew at the Duomo in Milano! Absolutely one of the two coolest pieces of carved marble in all of Italy. (The one being Moses at the St. Peter in Chains in Rome) I have a picture on my blog somewhere of St. Bart...I'll dig around and see if I can't get a link up for you to look. You'll LOVE it. :)

Wonderful, JBelle. He's on the Sistine ceiling too.

I have no beef with flayed minions.

JBelle

Indeed he is, Gail. Forgot about that...

I like the look on the face of JBelle's St Bart better than the one in the Sistine.

I just noticed the worms on gail's écorché. Nice touch.
