by Jacopo della QUERCIA

The baptismal font in the Baptistery in Siena, designed by Jacopo della Quercia, is the result of a cooperation of the best contemporary sculptors. The polygonal basin is Gothic from which a high Renaissance construction emerges. On the top there is the statue of St John made by Quercia. The bronze reliefs and the statues in the niches are the works of Quercia, Donatello and Ghiberti.
