Resurrection Pulpit (detail)

1460-65
Bronze
San Lorenzo, Florence

This side of the Resurrection Pulpit contains the scenes of Christ in Limbo, the Resurrection, and the Ascension of Christ. The three scenes are made from a low perspective. The three events are forged into a unity by the background, the continuous architecture. The four walls that emerge clearly delineate the stories depicted.
