On the golden column to the right, you can see a lizard - Giacomo Serpotta's signature. ('Sirpuzza' means a small serpent in the Sicilian language.) In the Oratorio del SS. Rosario di San Domenico, Serpottas stuccoes had to amalgamate to the existing paintings and merge with them visually and semantically.
