Never to old to learn, a new patronage saint for firefighters.

Revrunner said...

Interesting to learn about the origins of the Florian cross. I think we sometimes see that on firefighting symbols here in the States without any direct reference to or image of the saint.

Chrissy Brand said...

History and murals, a great combination.

I love them both Karl but the second is brilliant :)

Sharon Anck said...

That is a saint with a wonderful purpose.

Lowell said...

Love these. And that's a saint that doesn't just sit around heaven all day - he is active and working hard!

VP said...

I agree with Lowell: saints rarely do practical things in paintings!

William Kendall said...

Very appropriate, given his saintly patronage!

Halcyon said...

You have the best murals!

I love these wonderful paintings that you have!

Marleen said...

I'm sure there is a nice story to go with the murals.
