REFILE – ADDING THIRD PARTY DISCLAIMER A detail of a fresco by Giotto is seen in the Basilica of St Francis in Assisi in this picture released to Reuters on November 5, 2011. Art restorers have discovered the figure of a devil hidden in the clouds of one of the most famous frescos by Giotto in the Basilica of St Francis in Assisi, church officials said on Saturday. The devil was hidden in the details of clouds at the top of fresco number 20 in the cycle of the scenes in the life and death of St Francis painted by Giotto in the 13th century. The discovery was made by Italian art historian Chiara Frugone. It shows a profile of a figure with a hooked nose, a sly smile, and dark horns hidden among the clouds in the panel of the scene depicting the death of St Francis.

And what is with Assisi any way?

A Sissy?

Reverse Assisi?  Isissa? Is I Ssa? A Slave’s Answer to the Master?

I Si Ass? I See Ass? I Yes Ass?

Yes I am an Ass!

Will passover the Ass Cracks, for this time at least.

Lots of hidden things to see.  I remember pointing out to my Grandmother Wilda Foster, the group of hunting dogs in a Tapestry on the wall of the Palazzo Vecchio, the “Old Palace”.  They were not hunting.  If they were humans they would of been using the leaves of the forest to clean up, as the hunters back then did not carry Doggy Doo Doo Bags!

Or the bunny rabbit in the vegetable borders!
