    • You’re both right! St Francis’ Sermon to the Birds is a part of the larger St. Francis of Assisi Receiving the Stigmata by Giotto. This also features a rather alarming winged Christ zapping St Francis with the stigmata using some kind of laser beam.

    • You’re right–that is perhaps the most alarming Christ I’ve seen in all my years of art viewing. The lasers are fantastic, too.
