The Ascension (1442-45)

The Ascension (1442-45)
Luca della Robbia 1400 – 1482
terracotta with glaze — 1442-45
Mark 16:19 - So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
This sculpture is found in a lunette over the door of the Southern Sacristy of the Florence Cathedral. The relief is terracotta; the glaze is a mixture of minerals.

Over the door to the southern sacristy Della Robbia made a similar but less colorful relief on the Resurrection.
