Painting of a group of five figures depicting the martyrdom of Saint Sebastian. The central figure (Saint Sebastian) is nude (other than a loin cloth) and has been tied to a post and shot with arrows by the other four men. The man on the far right is resting on his bow, whilst the other three are shown in the act of shooting their arrows. The background shows ancient Roman buildings (the Colosseum, the Arch of Titus, the Torre delle Milizie and the Pantheon).
