Coat-of-Arms of Casa Martelli

c. 1440
Marble, gilded stone
Palazzo Martelli, Florence

This work from the Palazzo Martelli in Via Larga, Florence is now in the grand staircase of the palace in Via Zanetti. The linear tension of the forms is accentuated through the pink marble of the shield, the gilded stone of the gryphon, and the grey of the male figure above.
