Santa Maria in Cosmedin

Schola Cantorum
The right hand corner of the schola has the Paschal candle. The base incorporates a carving of a lion, but the twisted shaft with Cosmatesque decoration did not originally belong to the church but was donated in 1716. This was signed by the artist, Pasquale Caetani who was a Dominican friar, who in 1286 wrought the candlestick.
