Saturday Snapshot on Sunday: Purgatory nº 3

Ah yes, let me wrap up this little series. Here is my penultimate one.

This comes from a little roadside chapel in the village of Ruente, in Spanish Cantabria (I believe), which shows us St Francis pulling the souls out of Purgatory by way of Pièce de Resistance, but also a whole lot of other icons, in crucifix shape, including the Virgin Mary, the Turin Shroud, St John at the foot of the Cross, and several scenes from the Via Crucis.

I mean: how baroque can you get it? But it's mighty cute!
