Saint Sebastian soldier, martyr of the early Roman Church. A great favourite of artists as it provided the opportunity to paint a near nude male!
Over the last 100 years he has become the "Patron Saint of Gays".
So, many recent paintings represent this aspect of the martyr.

Now! PLEASE! Some comments!  I don't know what you like and enjoy unless you tell me!!!!!!!!
