Church of São Francisco de Assis, Ouro Preto, Brasil - Catholicism
Rising above the former gold-rush town in the heart of Minas Gerais, this rococo church of the late 18th Century is the masterpiece of O Aleijadinho (‘the little cripple’), one of Brazil’s most fascinating artists.
Afflicted by a severe disability, he crafted sculptures and architectural facades with a chisel and hammer secured to his fingerless hands.
Above the florid entranceway, Aleijadinho depicts Saint Francis on his knees, receiving the stigmata. (Alvesgaspar/Wikipedia)
