Saintly stencil and unloved door

Back of the church of Santi Biagio e Carlo ai Catinari, Rome, October 2019

This disheveled stencil to the side of the church door features someone carrying a dead or injured body – more details than that are a mystery, and it has looked like this for some time (looks the same in the 2017 image on Google maps). The door looks similarly uncared for.

  1. Please don’t mistake my agnosticism for an implied approval of this vandalism – I adore old churches! – but still, I think this is an insanely cool photograph. 🙂


  2. I’m not a fan of vandalizing a church door but this is still an interesting find.
    Just the kind of thing you can come across when you take the time to explore all sides of a building.
