Last Judgment (detail)

c. 1300
Santa Cecilia in Trastevere, Rome

Cavallini expended particular care on the modeling of the faces and hair; despite all the variations in detail, there is a specific typology in the physiognomies and hairstyles. In some of the heads the wrinkles on the foreheads and in the corners of the eyes are distinctly marked; the mouths are sometimes slightly open; the eyes are mobile; and the ears are frequently exposed.
