Cecco Bonanotte’s History: No. 7

Travels of St. Paul, which were made by Bonanotte in 1977, were housed in Vatican Museums. Then, in 1985, this work was contributed to the United Nations by Pope John Paul II.

During his journey to Kenya the Pope gave the work on permanent loan to the UNO; it was placed in the UN regional headquarters in Nairobi.

We can feel St. Paul’s deliberate motion from this work.

An expression, “the scales fall from one's eyes” derives from an episode of St. Paul. A disciple named Ananias prayed for him and "something like scales" fell from his eyes, then his vision was restored.
