Palazzo Ducale, Venice

In the middle of the fourteenth-century façade of the south side of the palace is a remarkable balcony in the Flamboyant Gothic style, added between 1400 and 1404 by Jacobello and Pier Paolo Dalle Masegne. It frames a broad lancet window, and is decorated with niches containing statues of Saints and Virtues, terminating in an allegorical carving of Justice. On either side of the balcony are ranged broad fourteenth-century windows with pointed arches.
