  1. Modern style with an old patron. Not bad at all. I like it.

  2. I like it! The Saint Christophorus reminds me of when Michael Jackson held his baby out from the balcony at the Adlon hotel here in Berlin. ;-)

  7. Very intriguing. I'm sure that these paintings reflect to some degree their degree of saintliness. I'm always surprised that there are so many saints of which I've never heard!

  8. I was reminded of an old rhyme "Heiliger Sankt Florian / Verschon' mein Haus / Zünd' and're an!"
    Then I found that there is even a wikipedia article on "Sankt-Florian-Prinzip"
    Very decorative!
