Cathedral Baptistery – The Beast of the Apocalypse

0
In the fresco of the Last Judgement in the baptistery of the cathedral, and more precisely in the apse, the painter (Giusto de Menabuoi) inserted all the scenes described in the Apocalypse. In one of these is the famous Beast. The curiosity of this beast is that it emerges from the sea with its seven heads (one of which appears to be dead) bearing on each head obvious papal tiaras. The artist probably wanted to contest the choice of the papal court to move to Avignon, France.
