Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, Venice

There is an imposing door on the facade of the Frari's Basilica with a great ogival arch on top of it. Above the arch is this beautiful statue of the Risen Christ. At the two sides of the arch two statues by Bartolomeo Bon can be found: the Virgin on the left and St Francis on the right.
