Thanks, Shirebound! Yes, there were far more paintings of the saint than I had ever imagined, and of so many different types! Really -- from wan martyrs to body-builders to come-hither pretty boys. They run the gamut.

Shirebound, that's great! In fact, I have seen this painting, but made into a Frodo manip by Shoesparks. I had always wondered what the original painting could have looked like or what it was. What is the significance of the bunny skin, I wonder? I mean, it's tastefully covering him up, and looks very pettable, but why a rabbit fur and not something else?

The model had a lovely physique, to be sure. I am sorry the painter put in the rabbit skin, though. I am not being cheeky, honestly. I think the rabbit skin gives the painting a coy look it wouldn't have had the painter just painted Abel nude. Like he's wearing a bit of naughty underwear from the Fur and Leather Shoppe.

If only we could ask our favorite artists questions like this. Why did they choose the colors, angles, garments, lighting... Ah well! We can but admire the results.

Perhaps I should hold a seance and call all the artists forth for a question and answer? *grin*

But what I meant about the rabbit is that I wondered if it was symbolic or something.
