The soul belongs to God, but the body belongs to Us

Diego Tolomelli is an Italian artist based in Rome, working in stained glass. Male nudes are just a small part of his output (he produced the stained glass windows for the cathedral of Abuja in Nigeria) but it's what we're all here to see.
You can see more of Diego's work at his website, IKO Stained Glass.
Title quote: "The soul belongs to God, but the body belongs to us." Rasputin, Russian mystic, 1869-1916.

I'm sure this wasn't in the portfolio he sent to Nigeria...

LOL... Exactly the same thought occurred to me, Eduardo

There is a wonderful irony here--a gay hating country takes an erotic artist as its image of Heaven.
