Some of the paintings featured in the Of Heaven and Earth exhibition were initially displayed in churches and other sacred places. Others would be included in the homes of wealthy arts patrons. After viewing the exhibition, imagine selecting one painting to take for yourself.

Consider the following prompts to assist in the discussion:
