The Miracle at Cana

Ceiling fresco
Church of Santa Maria dell'Ammiraglio ("The Martorana"), Palermo, Sicily

The ceiling fresco adopts a more modest version of the di sotto in su style popular at the time in larger Italian churches. The device allows the artist two points of emphasis. Jesus' gesture to the jars dramatically "below" is one, and the bride placed at the exact center of the composition is the other.
