Sometimes titled "Garland of Life." "... a continuous fresco, The Garland Bearers, depicts 12 young boys carrying a garland of roses, representing the disciples of Christ carrying the vine of life. Simberg also painted a red-winged serpent of Paradise on the ceiling, sparking off considerable protest, and as late as 1946, the bishop of Tampere Diocese proposed that it be removed."
