Indeed not as by definition a saint is dead. I meant he as a saint got it from there ie the church gave it to him, not he as a person
Most saints are multiple, could give them all of the above I suppose!St Genesius had been an actor in Roman theatre which was derived from the Greek original. He would have been familiar with the old sock and buskin and might have approved.
Genesius has other 'jobs' as a patron saint (of lawyers, dancers, printers etc) so could have been given, I dunno, a wig? A tutu?

Need the patience of a saint to have a cat at times!They'd need to be tagged with something easy for illiterate worshippers to recognise. The mask is highly appropriate for Genesius as he'd have seen ones like it in life.
St Gertrude has a cat. I'm not a Catholic but if I were she's the sort of saint I could get behind.
A rare scientific examination of remains at Rome's Santi Apostoli church failed to validate them as relics of Saint Philip and Saint James the Younger. ...
As with most relics it is is probably not what it is purported to be and is some 11th century monks skull
That';s also part of the funI’m not sure how accurate these reconstructions over skulls can be. There has to be room for creative interpretation there surely.
I absolutely think so too. Sometimes they have a caricaturesque quality and one can almost always detect the hand or sensibility of the artist in the reconstruction, in the same way one can detect the artist in realist paintings. Subtlety matters, and with the Egyptian reconstructions and others, there is the whole endless race debate; phenotypes don't always match with "racial" interpretations, etc.I’m not sure how accurate these reconstructions over skulls can be.
