St. Sebastian with Sts. Roch and Demetrius – Benvenuto


 Artwork by G. B. Benvenuto (Ortolano Ferrarese).
"Sebastian is bound to a tree stump. His body is pierced by arrows although his elegant pose does not imply that he is in pain. The quiver in the foreground alludes to his martyrdom. Saint Roch stands on the left with his pilgrim staff and a flask. Saint Demetrius is identified by the scroll inscribed with his name at his feet. He was proconsul of Achaia and was stabbed to death with a lance by order of the Emperor Maximinianus because he converted many Romans to Christianity."
