Porta del Paradiso


"Gate To Paradise"

The name speaks for itself - if there is a gate to Paradise it could look like this. The monumental door of the baptistery in Florence is the most important work by Lorenzo Ghiberti and a masterpiece of Renaissance art. The goldsmith and sculptor began work on the realisation of his designs which he had planned over years: the double doors are made up of ten plates with gilded reliefs. They show various scenes from the Old Testament, for example Adam and Eva or Cain and Abel.
