Allegory of The Immaculate Conception #giorgiovasari Vasari’s painting depicts Adam, Eve and Old Testament patriarchs and prophets chained to the Tree of the Knowledge of Good & Evil, which itself is bound by the serpent. The Immaculate Virgin Mary, by the grace of God and the birth of Christ, triumphs over original sin and the bondage of Satan over humanity♥️

Pistoia (Tuscany). Basilica of the Madonna of Humility. Vasari's dome seen from Piazza dello Spirito Santo. The existence of the sanctuary is already attested in the thirteenth century, it was rebuilt in Renaissance style in the sixteenth century. The church is located in Via della Madonna. Its architectural importance is due to the dome built by Giorgio Vasari and 59 meters high. It was built in place of the ancient church of Santa Maria Forisportae. The octagonal structure of the Corinthian order is preceded by a vestibule or atrium with barrel vaults decorated with rosettes and a central cupola. The sanctuary has a rich treasure. In Santo Spirito square there is instead the church of Sant'Ignazio, an ancient Jesuit parish (fifth photo) #madonna #humility #renaissance #pistoia #tuscany #dome #giorgiovasari #santamaria #octagonal #corinthian #rosettes #cupola #treasure #sanctuary #holyspiritsquare #vacation #igtravel #tourist #tra#traveling/a> #traveling #visiting #instatravel #travelling #instatraveling #travelgram #estremisti #ilmiolibro #sovversivi #massimopistis #alettieditore Information for the purchase of my new book: the book at a cost of 12.00 euros (120 pages), can be ordered in bookstores (ISBN 978-88-591-5719-9 - Publisher Aletti) or online on the page http: //www.alettieditore.it/emersi/2019/pistis.html from the link below.
