More Art

Stuck in my mind forever is one image from this painting of purgatory and hell. One character (slightly to the left of the being with the gaping mouth) straddles a huge saw, twice his size. And he works to saw off his arm. (That is exactly how it feels trying to be virtuous even on earth, isn't it? Not that I try that hard.)

P.S. We showed Chester lots of the religious art. He was able to identify St. Christopher and St. Nicholas! So proud.
