What a great painting!
I would love to be martyr. I think. Just kill me quick and don`t make it hurt too much!
Agreed, a great image. What is it?
I believe it is the martyrs of Nagasaki.
These things make one feel like a voyeur of sorts-- one thinks martyrdom should be very personal. I guess it never is-- humiliation is the greater part of the poverty of the Cross. I'm scared to think of what our great-grandchildren (someday) may have to face.
