Reliefs from the Gates of Paradise Doors--page 1 (of 2 pages)

Ghiberti
1425-1452, gilded bronze individual reliefs: 31 inches square

Notes: the images below are of the original reliefs, now in the Duomo Museum in Florence. The reliefs are protected under glass so it is impossible to take photographs of some of them without glare. See my earlier site for photographs of the copies on the doors outside.
