Santi Vincenzo e Anastasio a Fontana di Trevi

< previous > < index > < next >

On the larger window pediment sit two angels holding onto the coat-of-arms of Cardinal Mazarin. This spectacular piece of relief carving includes a cardinal's hat on top of the segmental pediment in the nest of three above; this hat is held by a pair of putti, and connected to the shield by the tassels. The shield intrudes into the tympanum of the segmental pediment. The sculptor was Antonio Raggi.
