Ecstasy of St. Francis

Did you guys miss me? I hope my sudden decision to peace out for a week didn't offend anybody. Anyway, here is something fresh for your Monday morning...looking at the fresco cycle this is from (the Renunciation of Worldly Goods probably being the most famous), I could probably spend all week with Giotto, but, eh. One is probably enough. Here is St. Francis upstaging his own monks at a party for Jesus!

(Giotto di Bondone, Ecstasy of St. Francis, 1297-1300)
