Liberty Cap Fresco in Swiss Church
    #3645264 - 01/18/05 09:47 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

This fresco depicts the martyrs Petrus (crucified upside down) and Paulus, who is decapitated.

This hangs in Johanniskirehe (St. John's church) in Mustair, Graub?den, Switzerland.

Some people see Psilocybe semilanceata in the 'shroom - shaped trees(?) (at right).

Any comments. Does anyone else besides me and 'some people' see the liberty caps?

>> I think they are depicted as trees.

Coming out of the halo around his head, with the growth habit that of mushrooms, and why painted dark and not green?
