This 19th century oil painting on copper represents Santa Barbara surrounded by a stormy sky with a bolt of lightening and her three windowed tower in the background. Having rejected the arranged marriage organized by her father, a rich pagan named Dioscorus, Santa Barbara was arrested and beheaded by him in 235 A.D., and he in turn, was struck down and killed by a bolt of fire from heaven. In the vignette behind her two bolts of lightening rain down on her infidel father's inanimate body. Because of her association with lightening, Santa Barbara is the patroness saint of fire, gunners, masons and miners. She s also petioned for protection from storms.
