East Door Of The Florence Baptistery

This sculpture currently resdies in the Battlstero di san Goivanni (Florence, Italy). This sculpture was creadted in 1425. This is significant because it was the start of the use of Bronze for sculptors. I find this piece so intersting because of the deep detail. It must have taken the sculptor a long time to complete because they didnt have the best tools. This is humanism becasue it revolves around a human.
