The lower reclining effigy is Bishop Antonio Orso (died 1511), the Cardinal's nephew. It was commissioned in 1520 by Jacopo Orso da Chioggia, a nephew of Bishop Orso. Below his effigy is a pile of books, an allusion to his extensive library, made up of about seven hundred and thirty books, which he donated to the friars.
