    Baldachin petersdom - Gian Lorenzo Bernini - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

  • Vered Gabay

    His first architectural projects were the façade and refurbishment of the church of Santa Bibiana (1624–1626) and the St. Peter's baldachin (1624–1633), the bronze columned canopy over the high altar of St. Peter's Basilica. In 1629, and before St. Peter's baldachin was complete, Urban VIII put him in charge of all the ongoing architectural works at St Peter's

Tomb of Pope Alexander (Chigi ) VII by Bernini

The chair-shaped bronze reliquary which holds the throne of St Peter is much larger than a normal chair, is ornate in shape and decorated with relief sculpture and gold leaf. The "Gloria" which surrounds a round window is a sculpture of clouds and sun-rays, surrounded by angels, the whole lot being covered in gleaming gold leaf.
