dc.descriptionVia della Scala, Florenceen
dc.description.abstractThis half-length glazed terracotta Madonna and Child is currently housed in a street-corner tabernacle on Via della Scala in Florence (at Via degli Orti Oricellari). It is difficult to see, as it is placed high at this busy cross-roads and is protected by what looks to be dirty plexi-glass. The work has the Medici coat of arms on the base. It may have been made originally for domestic devotion inside the home, or it may have been always intended to reign protectively over the public sphere.
