The St. Elizabeth’s church in Trybsz, Poland has some amazing polychromes that have survived from the 16th century. An interesting part of one of the walls was this image of Mary riding a crescent. Jessica seemed to know the story from Revelations where Mary, the crescent moon, and this beast all come together like this. All of the imagery was very apocalyptic but I thought this was pretty unique. I always find it interesting when Christian lore mixes with monsters and symbolism carried over from its pagan predecessors.
