Wood (originally polychrome)
Museo Nazionale di Villa Guinigi, Lucca

Based on the two documented, life-size polychromed wooden statues representing the Annunciation in the Collegiata in San Gimignano, a number of wooden polychrome works are assigned to Jacopo della Quercia.

This statue is on loan from the church Sts Simon and Judas in Lucca.
