Vatican City’s Violent Artwork

Europe, Travel

While I wander through enjoying the overall aesthetic that is Vatican City’s Museum, Joshua, ever observant of the oddest things, inspected all of the countless images that fill the walls, the roofs and the monuments. He most enjoyed spotting the very violent ones. Here are his favourites:

The death of Julius Caesar

This woman is about to hammer a nail into a man’s head.

While one man tears open the jaws of a lion, another man is smashing someone’s head with a bone.

About 5 people are shooting this guy in the chest with arrows.

To the left you’ll notice torn off limbs. A woman is holding a head.
