A view of one of the most famous statues to be found inside Milan Cathedral, San Bartolomeo Flayed.
Standing close to the altar, the statue was created by Marco d'Agrate in 1562. It shows the saint with his flayed skin thrown over his shoulders like a stole.

Une belle luminosité sur la statue qui la fait paraître toute dorée.
Amitiés et bonne journée.

I must admit, I have never heard of this statue ... I must be somewhat unrefined or ignorant!
It is a very movingly, sad statue, with its bony feet and legs, even haunting with the shadow climbing the pillar, behind!
The light is just amazing and adds to the mood of the scene.
Sometimes, I wish the size of photographs could be reduced; I do prefer to see the whole shot at one time.
Have a great day,

Excellent composition with the statue revealed in perfect clarity and details and great light. The shadow on the wall behind creates a lovely effect and the textures of the walls, the pillars and of course the designs on the lovely floor all make up a very well balanced composition.
Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend.

Good evening Stephen,
A remarkable statue in the cathedral, and unique in style for the 16th century. A fine photo inside the relatively darkened hall, as I remember it.
Details shown beautifully, well managed the scene.

What a macabre subject, I have never seen a statue like this before. It does put across a strong sense of pain and misery, which is of course perfectly understandable! I like where you composed the statue in the scene too, allowing its shadow to be as spooky as the sculpture itself. Fascinating subject, thanks for sharing

La statue est bien placée dans le cadrage. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de la statue. La lumière donne de belles teintes aux couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.

this representation of the tortured saint is horrifying and eerie, your presentation of the statue within its immediate context is excellent. The special lighting exalts the statue and its position in the cathedral, details are described with great precision. The statue is appalling and mesmerizing at the same time, like some religious art aims to be. The big shadow and the other statue in the background are suggestive elements that enrich the composition. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

Hello Stephen, Amazing sculpture. It reminds me the object from the exhibition Bodies... that we have now in Warsaw.
Warm regards Malgo

una degli angoli del Duomo di mIlano più fotografati e caratteristici inquadrato con una bella luce e in maniera perfetta.
Buon taglio, ottima nitidezza e colori gestiti molto bene.
Ciao e buona serata
