Saturday Snapshot: Purgatory nº 2

Last week we had the Virgin Mary, Saint Dominic and Saint Francis who 'pulled' the souls of sinners out of the cleansing flames of Purgatory by means of various pieces of ritual clothing; today we see our Crucified Savior perform the same good office, in a road side chapel somewhere in the Asturias. 

Please note the faces of the blessed sticking out of the clouds on both sides of the cross. 

The style of this painting is of course so very primitive that it makes Grandma Moses look like Michelangelo himself... But ain't that part of the charm?? Gimme that Ol' Time Religion any day!
