Saint Gunnar?

I’m no art expert, and those who are probably look down their noses at me for saying that I like realism. There are things about art I’ve never understood.

Why are holy people painted with shiny gold disks around their head? Do they bump into each other? Do they show up if you look in a mirror? (Not that I’m likely to ever find out...) All I know is it’s like a flashing neon sign that says, “Look! A holy person!”

So, what does this mean?

I guess they DO call it The Throne.
