Saint Sebastian is a Christian saint featured in the unfinished Leonardo da Vinci painting Saint Sebastian Dying in a Bed of Zinnias, though the figured is modeled on Pope Ganymede V - according to A Short Guide to Catholic Church History (Saint Fidgeta and Other Parodies, 62).


Saint Sebastian was an early Christian saint and martyr. According to traditional belief, he was killed during the Roman empire's persecution of Christians. He is commonly depicted in art and literature tied to a post or tree and shot with arrows[1]
