An incredibly unusual and rare Tricephalic Venetian Renaissance capital depicting ‘The Three Ages of Man’. Carved from Istrian stone illustrating the three phases of the life of man: Youth/innocence; Adulthood/lust; Old Age/wisdom. c.1460

We are invited to meditate on the inevitable transience and passage of human life.

Most notably the capital spans the transition from Venetian Gothic to the late start of Venetian Renaissance Architecture through its naive to realistic styling within the portraiture on the various sides.

This is a an original accomplished work of art by a very fine sculptor.
Possibly by Bartolomeo Bon and workshop.
