Please define this category. Nearly all depictions of saints have some sort of attribute, hence I think this category is pretty useless. --FA2010 (talk) 20:21, 14 August 2011 (UTC)

I removed most of the "Martyrdom of Sebastian" depictions. Sebastian in the nude with arrows in his body is not really "symbology", but a more or less realistic depiction of an actual execution. Another case would be a figure of Sebastian who is only recognizable by holding an arrow in his hand: that's "symbolism". --FA2010 (talk) 09:53, 15 August 2011 (UTC)
