Artwork: St. Sebastian, Martyr

St. Sebastian, Martyr (rendered in pencil)

 

I was reading about the persecution of the early Christians the other day and I was moved to draw this depiction of St. Sebastian's martyrdom. I drew the Roman Saint bound to a marble column, mortally wounded by arrows - symbolically, an angel hovers above him, bearing a palm branch and a laurel leaf crown; the first, a sign of martyrdom, and the latter, a herald of his triumphant entrance into his eternal reward.
