Glorification of the Eucharist

Painted around 1600 A.D. by the artist Ventura Salimbeni, the Glorification of the Eucharist (or Esaltation of the Eucaristy) has in recent years become known as the “Sputnik” of Montalcino. This is because, at first glance, it would appear to depict the world’s first artificial satellite, Sputnik 1.
