St. Sebastian

17th century
Franciscan Museum, Dubrovnik, Croatia

As in medieval images, St. Sebastian is presented as a young man nearly naked and pierced by arrows. The body is of course more realistically modeled, the tree is different, and serious attention has been paid to the landscape in the background.
