Photographer's Note

Madonna and Child
Work of the Master of San Ponziano, polychrome wooden sculpture, dates back to around 1300 - 1310, if its origin is unknown, it is currently at the Bardini Museum in Florence. It is practically identical to the Madonna di Belfiore, preserved in the Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto. The Virgin's robe is of the same silver velvet, the Child has the same face and always holds a book in his hand, this time green.
The back of the throne has very similar decorations, it is clear that the statues are not only the work of the same artist but are also close from a chronological point of view.
