  1. What spectacular images! The colors are still so vibrant, and in most cases the peeling paint simply reveals more brilliant color beneath. Some of my favorite things: angels with red wings; the variety of halos (esp. Jesus’ gold and the apostles’ black at the Last Supper); the “floating” nativity, and later, the Detail shot; the baptism of a completely naked Christ (haven’t seen that before) and the man I am assuming is the Holy Ghost descending from heaven; the raising of Lazarus with the ladies covering their noses behind him; the creepy wolf pulling on Judas in the bargaining for gold picture; the betrayal scene–maybe my favorite; the angels floating above the crucifixion–maybe my other favorite; Envy being depicted as a snake coming out of the mouth and turning back to bite . Okay, I guess I love them all! Thanks for sharing!
