This is most hideous picture of Jesus I've ever seen. It's a stained glass window in Santa Caterina. He's like a K-Mart Jesus or something, with that red and blue combo.

This is the mummified head of Santa Caterina. She became a saint after writing a bunch of letters to the Pope. The rest of her body is in Padova or somewhere. What possesses the religious folks to decapitate a saint and post her head at the side of the church for people to come by and check out? It's bizarre.

This is a close-up of her head. It's pretty disgusting.

This is Santa Caterina's thumb. It's also pretty gross.
