This is an original 1931 two-color collotype of a piece by Italian late medieval artist Simone Martini which depicts an experience the Patron Saint had one evening, when he kindly split his cloak in half to cover a poor man. Later that night, he dreamt that it was Jesus who had received the cloak, and Christ expressed gratitude that an unbaptized Roman soldier had clothed him. Today, Saint Martin is the patron saint of soliders, and is one of the most well-known saints in Europe. It is because of this clock tale that we now refer to small churches as chapels, or capellas, after the relic of the clock which a few of them housed back in history.
