This is one of my favorite paintings of Pentecost.  Look at the guy in the fetal position at the bottom, with his hands folded over his head.  Notice the flame coming at him.  The Holy Spirit always gets His man, even though the man's afraid and hiding.


  1. I just noticed it after clicking the image and getting the bigger view... Look to the right of Our Lady and in between the woman next to her is a not so pleasant face looming in the background. I am no art expert... Do you see it, Anita? Please explain if you know. Or am I just seeing things? Please forgive my ignorance.

  2. You know, you're right. I've never noticed that before. The person has some sort of headdress on; it's hard to tell if he's scowling or if he just has part of his headgear pulled down over his forehead.
