Art and all that stuff

More willies than you could shake a fist at. In the Vatican Museum.

 Unusual tomb decoration here.

Is this where Dali got his inspiration from?

Yes, while other countries' art is all about naked women, Italian art is all about the willies. And I will refrain from making any Vatican jokes here. OK. Maybe I didn't refrain much. Have fun!!!

So glad you got to go to the Vatican. It's quite the experience for those of us who attend simple places of worship.

It was amazing, leslie.

The skull and crossbones are used on Freemasons' graves. Visit Selkirk or Melrose graveyards sometime to see them in abundance. That was where an american tourist lady remarked to me "Sure are a lot of pirates buried here!", so I had to tell her about Freemasonry :-)

Oh right, I see, stu!
