Misunderstood Religious Art

A couple of pictures I took today - click on them to enlarge.

I mentioned this before - this cross is located just outside S. Maria Maggiore and scandalizes some Protestants to see the Virgin and Child sharing the cross with the Crucified Christ.

The Baptistry of S.Maria Maggiore - note the all-seeing eye of the Trinity so beloved of conspiracy theorists at the top of the picture.
