Pisa Baptistry door panel-1602

Author: Domenico Portigiani
Year: 1602
Description: Rhinoceros in bronze, in a panel on the left door of the baptistry next to the Cathedral in Pisa, Italy. It was cast by Domenico Portigiani and finished in 1602. It is interesting to note that although the artist was faithful in representing the body according to Dürer, the neck and head are taken from the Madrid rhino of 1586. The resemblance of the Palm to one version of the Collaert print suggests that the print was one of the artist's sources.
