This painting by Melchior de la Mars, titled "Saint Sebastian Released by the Roman Widow Irene and her Servant" from the 1620s, depicts a poignant moment of the Christian martyr Saint Sebastian.

In the scene, Saint Sebastian, bound to a tree and pierced by numerous arrows, is being tended to by the Roman widow Irene and her servant. Irene is shown carefully untying the ropes that bind Saint Sebastian, while her servant assists her. An angel, symbolizing divine presence, hovers above with a crown of martyrdom and a quiver of arrows, highlighting the saint's sanctity and suffering. The composition is dramatic and emotional, characterized by the intense expressions of the figures, the interplay of light and shadow, and the detailed depiction of the human form and clothing. The sombre yet powerful portrayal captures the themes of martyrdom, compassion, and divine intervention.
