marble (rock), h 71.0cm × w 64.5cm × d 42.0cm × w 102.6kg. More details

This bust of Christ was part of the tabernacle of the Benedetti family in the church of Santa Maria Novella in Florence. With the Saviour’s gentle expression, Caccini distanced himself from the traditionally cool style of the day. The sculpture is pervaded with something of the forthcoming Baroque style.
