Grand Tour Bronze St Peter Enthroned by DiCambio
SOLD

Small bronze statue of Saint Peter seated on a Renaissance see; probably a Grand Tour piece. The original is in the NW corner of the nave of St Peter's Basilica, Rome. Many thought it dated to the 5th century, but recently most agree it is probably of the 13th C. by Arnolfo DiCambio. St Peter holds the keys of the kingdom in his left hand, while blessing with his right. His left foot extended has been worn down on the original by centuries of kissing and touching by devout pilgrims. This figure is in near perfect condition with great detail on his face, hair, toga and feet. His halo is bent slightly. Height of figure is 3.5" Base is 2.25" deep and 1.75" wide
