Donatello: «Giuditta e Oloferne»

Judith and Holofernes (detail). Bronze, 1455-60.
Palazzo Vecchio, Florence.

The bronze sculpture, created by Donatello at the end of his career, depicts the assassination of the Assyrian general Holofernes by Judith and is remarkable for being one of the first Renaissance sculptures to be conceived in the round, with its four distinct faces.
A copy stands in one of the sculpture's original positions on the Piazza della Signoria, in front of the Palazzo Vecchio.
