'Apostle with scissor-glasses.’

The interior of the Chapelle Saint Antoine in Bessans is covered with frescoes and a part of the exterior as well. Even if the religious meaning escapes you, you can enjoy the quality of the work and the details. Like this scissor-glasses on the nose of one of the apostles. The chapel and its frescoes date from the beginning of the 16th century. Photo Paul Smit.
