December 22nd is the Feast Day of Saint Cooper, patron of miniatures painters. Saint Cooper painted a grand mural of the Heavens, including saints, redeemed sinners, five Popes and six hundred separate angles on a small pine cone. It was given to The Lobster Pope, who was suitably impressed after viewing it through a magnifying glass and commissioned a cathedral. Cooper Cathedral was just large enough for one person to fit inside, if they crouch, and contains some of the most elaborate frescoes of the age.
