[chuck] in Art, Dharma, God, Milan Cathedral

Just so you know, this is what God was thought to look like in the 16th century. Sculpture by Battista da Corbatta (1554) of gilded and painted wood, from the exquisite Milan Cathedral. I stopped in front of this statue for quite a while, reflecting on God and religious iconography and large churches. I assume the sphere in God's left hand is the Earth.
