      Una tradición muy antigua y ha trasformado la representación de San Sebastian en un icono de la pintura. Bon dia Azurea.

    I had no idea St. Sebastian was such a popular topic. These paintings are very moving.

      The “cult” (not religious) to Saint Sebastian in art goes all the way back to such artists as Boticelli. He is now considered a gay icon as well.
