The Road to Damascus

Paul on the road to Damascus, Via Marradi, Livorno
I found this relief in the hall of a building in Via Marradi. It probably represents the conversion of Paul the Apostle on the road to Damascus.

That's a lot of detail. I like that it has just a little bit of color.

What a nice find. I also like these pale colours.

I think it's awesome the artist could convey the story within a square!

I like this bas-relief, it is beautiful, although it is unusual that it is been painted.

It is a beautiful relief, but it could also be an illustration of a Monty Python sketch. "It's only a flesh wound."
