|"Is this an Armani?"|
Alternate Reality: London's subway is cool. They have shopping malls, restaurants and museums. While sauntering through the concrete underground, guess who I saw? The inscrutable apostle to the gentiles. St Paul trying out a fashionable leopard skin tunic in one of the shopping malls. Or was that Kris Kristofferson auditioning for a new Mel Gibson movie?
Real Reality: This figure is the work of Alonso Berruguete (about 1489-1561). It was the monumental altarpiece formerly in the church of San Benito Valladolid, Spain. It is now on display at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
