Bronze door: Back

Basilica di San Pietro, Vatican

At the back of the door (bottom right) there is a strip of bronze, which depicts Filarete leading his assistants in a sort of dance. The figures are flanked by a man on a donkey and a man on a dromedary. No one has yet come up with an explanation for their presence.
