Italian Renaissance Marble Statue of Saint John the Baptist c.1550 (Later Inscription of 1612)

A striking Renaissance marble statue depicting Saint John the Baptist wearing a camels pelt with a lamb at his feet. c.1550

The lower Italian inscription roughly translates: “NTRO PROTETO RE ALA CONPAGNIA DIL CARRO DEL VENTO 1612” ‘I protect the Kings wing with the chariot of the winds company‘.
The inscription was added at a later date in 1612.

A superb and dramatic piece.
