Religious art with a dazzling political overtone.



12th century altar-front from the Catalan church of Sant Martí de Gia

who has appeared to the 81-year old saint in his final and fatal fever.
The unwrinkled blanket displays the colours of the Kingdom of Aragon,
whose patron saint is...St Martin.
