saint sebastian by TOM LIESEGANG, 1990
acrylic, cement on canvas with wooden box containing arrow.

I love this - the medium, the pairing of the shaded, dynamic, terrified pose with the static object, what the artist has to say about it: 

historically, st. sebastian many times has been depicted with his eyes looking skyward, in a serene gaze towards the heavens while roman soldiers take pot shots at him with their arrows while he’s tied to a tree….I tried to imagine the horror of it…trying to protect your face, twist away.
