A very expressive sculpture.

About the story of Saint Sebastian:
Saint Sebastian grew up in Milan and, thanks to his excellent training as an officer on watch, worked under Emperor Diocletian.
According to tradition, he publicly admitted to the imperial court that he belonged to Christianity, which led to his death sentence for the Emperor Docletian under fire from Numidian archers.
The martyr Saint-Sebastien miraculously survived and continued his plea for Christianity. The emperor will renew his death sentence and let him die in the circus.
The Christians buried the body and the church "San Sebastiano fuori le murra" was built on the site of his grave in the 4th century.
