Palazzo Ducale, Venice

The ground floor of the Doges' Palace houses a museum of fragments of the original fabric of the building. They include some fourteenth-century capitals from the arcading that was replaced by copies during the restoration in the nineteenth century. The quality of execution suggests they are the work of the Venetian sculptor Filippo Calendario. The carvings represent a variety of subjects, such as animal heads and allegorical figures.
