When in Florence please take the time to seethe doors on the building to the right--used for baptisms if memory serves. The doors are brunelleschi's masterpiece, he beat out several artists in a competition. They depict biblical scenes, standard fare for the day, but are so magnificently done it's a sight to behold! Crafted in bronze, they were about to be cleaned when we saw them--maybe you'll see them with a slight patina, which should enhance the figures more than when shinny or dark.
