Bianca Crowns Pier Maria with a Laurel Wreath

c. 1460
Golden Room, Castello di Torrechiara, Torrechiara

The third scene, on the northwest wall, again shows the couple inside a shrinelike aedicula. Again he kneels before her, but this time she is placing a laurel wreath on his head, crowning him as a poet.
