All over Austria you find these little shrines. They're on farms, they're in cities, they're along roads, they're in churchyards. Usually there's a crucifix in them or a Madonna and Child. But sometimes there are saints and—good Catholic boy that I am—I usually recognize them. This one has me stumped. Presumably that's a saint... they don't put these shrines up for just anyone... but who the hell is it and what the hell is happening to him?

So, Slog Hive Mind, anyone know who this saint is? And what this guy is the patron saint of exactly? Is there a patron saint of finger banging? Non-consensual, same-sex finger banging? Because if there isn't, he's definitely the guy.

Some close up shots... after the jump...
